Dark Skies Festival

About

The North York Moors and Yorkshire Dales are a stargazer's paradise, with some of the best night skies in the country.

2020 is the year space travel becomes a reality, but you don't need to leave Earth to do it! Join us for our own nebula adventure as we explore the cosmos for the fifth Dark Skies Festival from 14 February to 1 March.

Delve deep into space with over 100 events across 17 days, including stargazing safaris, night navigation tours, talks from leading UK astronomers, runs and bike rides in the dark, ghost walks, night zips, stay and gaze experiences and photography workshops that will spark your imagination.
