Event description

Description

Join us for a stunning view of the Milky Way in the ultra dark village of Keld in Upper Swaledale. If you have never seen this river of light overhead this is the perfect time of year and the ideal location, away from city light pollution. We will also break out big telescopes to show you star clusters and galaxies far, far away, and keep eyes peeled for shooting stars. But we'll start with a colourful talk to set the scene in the resource centre and also enjoy warm refreshments and cake! Goes ahead in all weather.

Yorkshire Dales

The Dales is in the top three darkest national parks in England and Keld a stunning vantage point to admire the heavens - a truly marvellous little village. We can see over 2,000 stars compared with a handful visible from a town or city as well as the Milky Way.
