"Starfest" in Sark

Post by GD on Tue 06 Mar 2012, 5:12 pm

Sark's getting ready to celebrate its night sky.

It's the first place in the world to be awarded official "dark sky island" status, which is being used as a fresh way to attract visitors to the rock.

A "starfest" is taking place next week, on 17 and 18 March, to showcase the appeal of Sark to stargazers.

The event will include a presentation by Dr Marek Kukula, the Public Astronomer at Greenwich who will be talking about "A Tour Of The Universe".

Film-maker Sue Daly will be giving a lecture on the challenges of photographing the night sky.

And, weather-permitting, there'll be star-gazing as well.

To find out more about the events, contact Annie Dachinger on 01481 832740.
