Details have now been released for the 14th annual "Starfest" starcamp organised by Scarborough & Ryedale Astronomical Society. The 3 day event takes place in Adderstone Field, Dalby Forest, North Yorkshire between Friday 22nd and Sunday 24th August (Bank Holiday Weekend). Astronomers from across the UK attend this event to take advantage of the dark skies in the North York Moors National Park and the forest has recently been awarded "Milky Way class" of the Dark Sky Discovery status.
For those who have not attended Dalby previously, please note the facilities are basic! Its all about the quality of the skies.
Guest speakers for the weekend will be announced in due course as they are confirmed.
More information and a booking form can be downloaded from the Scarborough & Ryedale AS website (http://www.scarborough-ryedale-as.org.uk/saras/starfest/starfest-2014/).
The society can also be found on Facebook and Twitter. To avoid confusion with other events using the name Starfest, we have opted for an offical hashtag for this years event of #DalbyStarfest14.
