February Northumberland Dark Skies Festival

February Northumberland Dark Skies Festival

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 take place between 12th – 28th February and comprises events from all five observatories in Northumberland: Battlesteads, Kielder, Stonehaugh, Twice Brewed & Allenheads. There will be a wide variety of things to see and do – from beginner events for families, to more specialised astrophotography workshops on how to photograph the Aurora.

You can see more details of all of the events on the National Park website here.

And don’t forget, you can book your own stargazing experience at Burnfoot with our very own astronomer – see more details here.
