Sun and stars at Carnewas

Saturday 2 August

Join National Trust rangers and Kernow Astronomers for some stargazing at this stunning cliff-top location, in January 2014 awarded Dark Skies status.

As the sun, our nearest star, sets slowly into the sea, we may see any sunspots and flares on its surface with a special solar scope. The moon will follow closely behind. Look for 'seas', mountains and craters through telescopes.

Thousands of stars of various colours and brightness will gradually appear and local astronomers with telescopes will guide you through our amazing Cornish sky.
