Dark Skies Festival - 'Saving the Dark' Film Screening



80% of the world’s population live under light polluted skies. What do we lose when we lose sight of the stars? Excessive and improper lighting robs us of our night skies, disrupts our sleep patterns and endangers nocturnal habitats. Saving the Dark explores the need to preserve night skies and what we can do to combat light pollution.

The North York Moors National Park and partners are delighted to announce four exclusive screenings of this thought-provoking film during the Dark Skies Festival 2019, and the Yorkshire Arboretum is proud to be chosen.

The screening will start at 7:30pm for 1 hour, followed by a 1 hour star party hosted by amateur astronomer Richard Darn. Booking is essential.
