South Downs National Park Dark Skies Festival – 10 to 26 FEBRUARY 2017
In 2016 the South Downs National Park became the world’s newest International Dark Sky Reserve (IDSR), the 2nd in England and only 11th in the world. What better way to mark the occasion than a two-week festival in the dark winter months?
Whether you live in or close to the South Downs there are stargazing events happening near you. Local astronomy groups will be pointing their telescopes to the heavens at special star parties, there will be talks on nocturnal wildlife, night walks and more.
