Dark Skies at Lough Navar

Dark Skies at Lough Navar
Event Details

Join amateur astronomer Terry Moseley of the Irish Astronomical Association on another Dark Sky Safari in the pristine dark skies of Lough Navar on February 18th.

See and learn about the best known constellations and our own galaxy, the glorious Milky Way, and some of its most fascinating highlights, such as the beautiful star cluster, the Pleiades or Seven Sisters; the Orion Nebula, where stars and planets are being born as we watch. And looking beyond the realms of the Milky Way, spot the giant Andromeda Galaxy, containing about 300 thousand million stars, and which is 2.5 million light years away - the most distant thing you can see with just your own eyes.
