Peak District Dark Sky Stargazing Experience
We are closed for a summer break from Friday 21 June 2019 until Sunday 30 June 2019 inclusive. Inquiries received during this time period will be acknowledged and processed on our return from Monday 1 July 2019.
Enjoy the wonders of our universe with a private stargazing experience night from the Peak District in England. Dark Sky Telescope Hire offer private stargazing experiences for couples, families and groups from the Peak District’s best dark sky location near Hathersage, Derbyshire. We bring a telescope and our astronomy knowledge to you for a 1-hour, 2-hour or 3-hour exclusive stargazing experience.
Your Peak District Dark Sky Experience will begin with a laser-guided tour of the stars & constellations that we can see on our chosen night. Our astronomer will then use one of our large telescopes to take you out on a tour across the universe. Along the way we’ll stop at star systems, star clusters, nebulae and galaxies far beyond our own, and we’ll give you the background story to each view. If the moon and / or planets are in the night sky on your chosen date then we’ll visit them too with the telescope.
Our Peak District stargazing experiences are available on week nights and weekend nights throughout 2016 and beyond. If you’re looking to buy the stargazing experience for someone as a gift then we can package the experience as a gift voucher.
