Dark skies festival

I took this shot tonight under the moonlight at Woodhenge. I didn’t take the right equipment with me and I am not keen on the photograph, but I think that the location has potential under different conditions (may be with a new moon on a clear night). I will return to the place again to see if I can get the image that I have in my mind.

Dark skies festival

In 2016 the South Downs National Park became the world’s newest dark sky reserve. To celebrate this, the park is holding a dark skies festival (click the link to go the website) to mark this achievement. The festival is being held over the half-term between Friday 10th February and Sunday 26th February. It has a number of family events arranged. I am hoping that we will get to some of the events as it looks good.
