We are creating a unified UKRI website that brings together the existing research council, Innovate UK and Research England websites.
If you would like to be involved in its development let us know.

Dark sky

Stargazing is popular with young and old, people from all social backgrounds – it’s a great way to discover the wonders of science and technology. Dark Sky Discovery is a nationwide network of astronomy and outdoor organisations that helps you enjoy the stars, wherever you are.

The network helps local groups and organisations through:

  • Free pocket Starcharts
  • The Dark Sky Discovery Site scheme – where is the best place in your local area to see the stars?
  • Training workshops
