Dalby Forest Starfest 2015 (Aug 14th-16th)

Postby AndyExton » Mon May 04, 2015 12:59 pm

Details have now been released for the 15th annual "Starfest" starcamp organised by Scarborough & Ryedale Astronomical Society. The 3 day event takes place in Adderstone Field, Dalby Forest, North Yorkshire between Friday 14th and Sunday 16th August. Astronomers from across the UK attend this event to take advantage of the dark skies in the North York Moors National Park and the forest has recently been awarded "Milky Way class" of the Dark Sky Discovery status.

For those who have not attended Dalby previously, please note the facilities are basic! Its all about the quality of the skies.

Guest speakers confirmed for the weekend:
Stuart Atkinson (Eddington AS) - "Our Place in the Universe"
John Nichol (Nichol Optics)- "Telescope Disasters"
Juergen Schmoll (Cleveland & Darlington AS) - Title TBC

More information and a booking form can be downloaded from the Scarborough & Ryedale AS website (http://www.scarborough-ryedale-as.org.uk/saras/starfest/starfest-2015/).

The society can also be found on Facebook and Twitter. To avoid confusion with other events using the name Starfest, we have opted for an official hashtag for this years event of #DalbyStarfest15.
