Bright Stars and Meteor Showers
Casting your eyes skyward on a clear night is an amazing experience at any time of year, but the very best time to stargaze is during a New Moon phase when the skies are at their very darkest, and the stars seem to pop out of the firmament.
The next New Moon (when the Moon is not visible) will occur this Sunday, 15th November. If you have clear skies overhead and able to get away from neighbouring street lights, then take a trip and explore the dark side of the National Park. Here are some simple tips to prepare yourself for your evening with the stars.
