A big open dark indigo sky filled with sparkling stars is what you see when you look up at night in Weddin Shire. It provides dark skies suitable for spectacular night viewing. A new moon is the best time to watch stars and to see the spectacular milky way.

Spot the man on the moon or watch the comets shoot by. Keep an eye on our events calendar for specific dates you should be gazing up at night.
