Earth Hour Stargazing at Grizedale

Starry sky at Gisburn ForestWe will be your guide taking you on an incredible journey through the constellations and along the Milky Way, while also showing you how to find all sorts of heavenly objects for yourself.

We'll tell you more about our dark skies and show startling images and videos of the objects we hope to see when we go outside, weather permitting. But even if the weather does not co-operate we'll still have colourful talks, videos and hands on help with telescopes, together with friendly advice on how to get started in this wonderful hobby.
