Kelling Heath Autumn Equinox Star Party next week

The Autumnal Equinox, when the day is approximately equal in length to the night, will be celebrated with the UK’s largest star party at Kelling Heath, Norfolk. The star party runs from Monday to Friday, the 14th-25th of September, with the main day falling on the 19th – the equinox itself. It is a residential star party, with places for tents, and there will be talks on the main day itself as well as trade stands and second hand astronomical stuff. During the main weekend, there is an area of the camping site dedicated entirely to amateur astronomers with a no lights policy. This has been entirely booked, but the area without the no lights restriction still has places at £10 a night pitch fee. You can simply drive up to take part, but be warned no cars will be allowed anywhere near the dark area, so find somewhere distant to park…
