Event description

Description

This event is now fully booked. Please check our other listings for spaces.

Enjoy a guided tour of the night sky, focusing on objects in our solar system (the moon and other planets) as well as stars that reside far away from Earth within our Milky Way galaxy. View a range of constellations and the objects that reside within them, including deep sky objects such as nebulae, star clusters and galaxies. All attendees will get plenty of opportunities to view through our large telescope under some of the darkest skies in England in the heart of Dalby Forest.

Wrap up warm as it can get very cold on a night but we will provide hot chocolate and snacks to keep you warm. If you have your own equipment please feel free to bring it, even a pair of binoculars and a blanket to lie on can be great.

We also have our indoor planetarium on standby so if the weather is poor and we can't see any stars, or if we get very cold we can come inside and warmup, and enjoy a tour of the night sky and some immersive films about our solar system, galaxy and universe. This means we will only cancel an event if Dalby is inaccessible due to weather conditions.

This event takes place at our Dalby Explorer Hub, located in the Courtyard at the opposite end of the carpark to the main visitor centre, if you park at the main visitor centre carpark and then follow signs for the Dalby Bike Hub/Courtyard you will find us (please note mobile phone coverage is very poor in Dalby Forest). If you don't have a Dalby Forest pass to cover your parking charge then we will give you a code on the night to use before you exit to give you free parking. We will have free hot drinks and snacks, and there are toilets. We do not recommend dogs attend these events. There is no lower age limit but we find children over the age of 7 get the most out of these events.

This event is part of the 2020 Dark Skies Festival running across the North York Moors and Yorkshire Dales National Parks.
