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
