Details

Enjoy a guided tour of the night sky, focusing on objects that reside far away from Earth within our Milky Way galaxy and even beyond, best observed through a large telescope.

View a range of constellations, nebulae, star clusters and galaxies under some of the darkest skies in England and possibly even a glimpse of planets within our Solar System.

If the skies happen to be cloudy, don't despair. The Hidden Horizons immersive star dome will be available for you to enjoy space related film and a virtual tour of the night sky.

We will provide hot chocolate and snacks to keep you warm. If you have your own equipment please feel free to bring it, even a pair of binoculars and a blanket to lie on can be great.

Meet at the Dalby Forest Visitor Centre.
Wrap up warm!

For more information and to make a booking, please visit the Hidden Horizons website.
