Event description

Description

Join us for a stunning view of the spring night sky in the ultra dark village of Keld in Upper Swaledale. This event is part of the Dark Sky Festival and we'll take you on a magical tour using powerful telescopes to spy distant galaxies and sparkling star clusters. There will also be colourful talks to set the scene in the resource centre and warm refreshments and cake. Plus we'll let you try a virtual reality tour of the heavens. Goes ahead in all weather (unless conditions are dangerous).

Yorkshire Dales

The Dales is in the top three darkest national parks in England and Keld is a stunning vantage point to admire the heavens. This truly marvellous little village boasts over 2,000 stars overhead compared with a handful visible from a town or city as well as the Milky Way. It is one of the starriest spots in England.
