Dark Skies Festival – Online 12-28 February

North York Moors and Yorkshire Dales National Park are celebrating the sixth Dark Skies Festival. It’s going online following the success of the virtual programme during the Fringe Festival in October. Yorkshire’s pristine dark skies will always exist and they want to share that with you, wherever you are in the country!

Bringing you interactive, inspiring and interstellar presentations across the two weeks, this year’s focus is on Nature at Night.  A particular highlight is the live wildlife cameras, including footage of owls, kestrels and even an ermine stoat.  Many of the events are free but there are some that incur a cost – it will tell you in the individual event details.

Head to the Dark Skies Festival website to see the full programme of events and get yourself involved.
