Dark Sky Discovery Sites

Wherever you are, there is somewhere nearby that is just slightly better for viewing the night sky - perhaps somewhere a little away from direct street lighting, or with fewer buildings or trees to obstruct the view. We are building a network of these places so that more and more people have easy access to somewhere local to get a good view of the night sky.

Our network is growing, but we're always looking for more, so if there is somewhere near you, consider nominating it.

Find out how to nominate your best local stargazing spot as a Dark Sky Discovery Site!

Events

Join in National Astronomy Week!, 1-8 March, events throughout the country.

Our google map currently shows upcoming events and venues that run regular stargazing sessions.

Or try searching for events near you on BBC’s Things to do website.
