Event description

Description

Join us for a stunning view of the Milky Way above the dark 900 acre Chambers Farm Wood. 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 education barn and enjoy warm refreshments and cake! Goes ahead in all weather.

Chambers Farm Wood

The night sky above the beauty spot is very dark on moonless nights, with the full range of wonders on show, including the Milky Way, clusters and distant galaxies. It is the best Forestry Commission site in the East Midlands for stargazing. The education barn is a wonderful warm and comfortable venue for this event. We’ll provide warming refeshments.
