Do Look Up
It’s true! The Andromeda Galaxy is hurtling towards us at 25,000 miles per hour!, but don’t worry, it won’t collide with our galaxy, the Milky Way for another 4 billion years. In the meantime, why not just enjoy the view by attending some of the events included in this year’s programme for the Northumberland Dark Skies Festival in the Northumberland International Dark Sky Park, England’s first and largest Dark Sky Park.
The Northumberland Dark Skies Festival will feature a wide range of events and activities to see and do, for all the family; including a number of stargazing events taking place in the ‘Park of Darkness’, to chats with local astronomers as well as a Northumberland Dark Skies Exhibition at The Sill National Landscape Discovery Centre, which opens on the 12th February.
We will continue to update this page with full details on offer throughout January. We hope you will be inspired to visit Northumberland International Dark Sky Park in the near future and experience our incredible dark skies at one of the many amazing observatories and venues dotted around Northumberland.
