Dark Skies Roadshow

Sep 30, 2023 | News, News - Featured

 To accompany our new dark skies leaflet, we hosted six special stargazing events staged at locations across the Howardian Hills between September 2023 and February 2024.

The opportunity was provided to join astronomers to spy celestial wonders through telescopes, learn more about the importance of a dark nocturnal environment and get advice on switching to dark sky friendly lighting. Many of these events were free and were targeted at residents in or near to the Howardian Hills.

Take a look at our Projects page for more information about our Dark Skies Community Programme and to download a copy of our new Dark Skies leaflet.

Below is a satellite image showing how good the Howardian Hills National Landscape area is for dark skies and also showing the main areas of light pollution in and around it.
