See the stars, wherever you are!
50 things to do before you’re 11 ¾
We’re celebrating the great outdoors this spring with the National Trust’s ‘50 things to do before you’re 11 ¾’ challenge, refreshed for 2013 and now including stargazing!
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!
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.
