Dark Skies Festival 2021
The annual Dark Skies Festival is a celebration of dark skies around National Parks and Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and this year it’s taking places online. A star-filled sky is one of nature’s most natural wonders! But they’re becoming harder than ever to experience. In an urban area you’ll be lucky to see 20 stars on a clear night but in an area of low light pollution, such as in the North York Moors, you could see as many as 2,000 twinkling above you. There’s a host of activities taking place during February half term, including plenty that will help children discover, learn and enjoy the dark skies above. Click here for our highlights.
