Little Langdale by night

Dark Sky Festival

Posted in lake district, little langdale, grizedale, star gazing

When? Friday 23rd February

Why include some star gazing, meteor watching and look out for Jupiter this spring! Grizedale Forest are holding a series of events over the spring which invite you to join them on a number of occassions. The Lake District is the perfect place away from the urban environment and light pollution to gaze into the sky and catch a meteor shower, or if your very lucky witness the Northern lights ( we have seen them before from the front of the Three Shires- we switched off all the outside lights.)

Grizedale forest is located a 20 minute drive away from us, and it’s a great place hidden away from the towns and villages to watch the night sky.

The professionals will be on hand to 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 is not on their side they will still have colourful talks, videos and hands on help with telescopes, together with friendly advice on how to get started in this wonderful hobby.
