Bodmin Moor wins Dark Sky status!

Exciting news: the application by Cornwall Council and Caradon Observatory has been successful and Bodmin Moor has been designated an “International Dark Sky Landscape” by the International Dark-Sky Association. This reflects the incredible quality of the dark night sky over the moor, a commitment to educational outreach and efforts to avoid light pollution. More details are available at www.cornwall.gov.uk/darksky.

Caradon Observatory will be running a Dark Sky evening on Saturday 19 August here at Jamaica Inn.  The talks will focus on meteors, meteorites and planets (including exoplanets).  Weather permitting, Jupiter will be visible on the western horizon with Saturn due south and then Neptune rising in the east.  If it's clear there wil be the opportunity to look through a couple of large telescopes.  If you've never seen Saturn through a large telescope you're in for a real treat - it's absolutely beautiful!  Come along at 8.30pm for free stargazing or call 01566 86250 to book for the 7pm dinner event.
