2020 International Dark Sky Week

    International Dark Sky Week 2020

    This annual week of events might be remarkably different for 2020 but nevertheless, it gives us all an opportunity to connect with our night skies, to consider the amazing habitat we have overhead and to reconnect with loved ones far away. 

    We have a series of virtual events planned in collaboration with the International Dark Sky Association and we hope you'll enjoy the week with us. 

    For the full list of events please see our Facebook page

    Events will be released on Facebook & YouTube
