Astronomers weekend from

Thursday, October 04, 2018
Haw Wood Farm

October 4th to 9th 2018

Pitches £12 per night.

Once again the Breckland Astronomical Society will be hosting the Spring Star Party at Haw Wood Farm. 

The Star Parties are a gathering of both expert astronomers , those with an interest in learning a little more and those who simply want to sit back and gaze at the beauty of the night sky. 

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.

Because of the nature of the event all lighting on the park will be down to a minimum level or off altogether. We ask anyone participating in this weekend to be aware that to observe the stars at their best ,bright lights and torches should be avoided around the observation area and Fire Pits will not be permitted.
