The skies above probably the darkest that most people will ever see. Countless stars, the Milky Way stretching from horizon to horizon, shooting stars, planets, comets and the Northern Lights are all visible from here. Guests can come to private bookings, open events or specific activities, can join the "Friends of the Observatory" group and can use the telescopes and other facilities at this wonderful natural resource - all visits to be pre booked with the observatory. « less
