Come and enjoy Scarborough & Ryedale's Astronomical Society public stargazing sessions in the Great Yorkshire Forest!
The public stargazing sessions at the Low Dalby Astronomy Centre in Dalby Forest are held during the autumn and winter months. Come and see the stars, planets, nebulae and galaxies under one of the darkest skies in the country. The site of the society observatories was awarded the Milky Way Class of the UK Dark Sky Discovery Award in January 2013.
Please wrap up warm and bring along a torch (preferably with a red filter to preserve yours & others night vision). Take care in the car park also.
If the weather happens to be inclement, please don’t be put off. A member of the society will give a talk / virtual tour in the warmth of the Forestry Commission Visitor Centre.
