Astronomers Week April 21st

Thursday, April 28, 2022
Haw Wood Farm

April 21st to 28th with the main event on Saturday April 23rd.

Pitches £16 per night.

This year will once again see a dedicated week for several local astronomical societies to enjoy the dark skies at Haw Wood Farm.

The site will be bookable by phone or email only so we know everyone is aware and part of the event.

Haw Wood Farm has been named a ‘Dark Sky Discovery Site’ due to its unusual lack of light pollution.

We have naked eye visibility 5.73, averted 5.99 and a best SQM reading of 21.75.

Very few areas of the UK have this award which makes us the perfect place to combine a weekend break with some top quality star gazing.

We welcome both visual astronomers and imagers but we will try to keep the two in different areas of the site to avoid any issues with light pollution .

If you would like to book during this week please email or call 01502 359550.
