Past Event – Wonders of the Solar System – Dartmoor Walking Festival 26/8/2017

Join us to experience the dark skies magic of Dartmoor. Among the astronomical treats to enjoy on this evening will be Mars and Saturn – two of the most iconic planets in our solar system – as well as galaxies, nebulae, constellations and more. Dartmoor’s Daughter will lead the walk and talk about the landscape context and tales from the area. And Dartmoor Skies will talk about the Solar System and pitch their large telescopes to offer everyone the opportunity to view some of our neighbouring planets and more. D365 Squares include L19, K19, L18. Our back-up plan for cloudy skies will be a local pub/hotel.
