The Northumberland Dark Skies exhibition at The Sill: National Landscape Discovery Centre, will run between 19 February and 02 May 2022. The free exhibition is aimed at families with children (8 years +) and beginners with little or no knowledge of astronomy. The exhibition will include: a gallery of night-time landscape photography, displays on what to see in the night sky and how to conserve our dark skies, hands-on activities and a showcase of telescopes and meteorites on display.
