North Pennines Stargazing Festival: Skywatch

Join the North Pennines AONB Partnership at Talkin Tarn Country Park, Carlisle, to experience some of the darkest skies in the North Pennines. Astronomers from the Border Astronomical Society will be on hand to show you around the night sky, using telescopes and binoculars. Displays, information and refreshments will be available.

All ages are welcome. Wrap up warm and take a red-light torch (if you have one).

The North Pennines is one of England’s most special places – a peaceful, unspoilt landscape with a rich history and vibrant natural beauty. In recognition of this it is designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). The area is also a UNESCO Global Geopark.

The third North Pennines Stargazing Festival is in Autumn Half Term 2019. Visit the inky black skies in the darkest mainland Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and celebrate the fabulous nightscape - enjoying jaw-dropping stargazing opportunities.
