‘Past in the Present’ - Caherdaniel Dark Sky stargazing with Michael Sheehan & Kay O'Connor (CDS Walk of the Planets is a free year-round 3km scaled solar system walk) Event follows Rock Art by Night!
In Kerry’s Gold-tiered Dark-Sky Reserve (a hard-earned award thanks to Julie Ormond and other members of the South Kerry Astronomy Group – including of course Michael Sheehan!) our extra dark skies mean extra bright stars, and lots of them. Kay (the brainchild behind our Walk of the Planets) and Michael will help you identify and name the celestial bodies, often using mythology as an effective learning aid. With views to Skellig Michael, Denish and Scariff from Derrynane Pier, we are gazing up!
