“It’s the best view I’ve ever had” - Prof Ian Morison (Jodrell Bank)
eXTReMe Tracker
There are few places in the UK where you can clearly see the Milky Way and even  the Andromeda Galaxy. The Galloway Astronomy Centre is such a place.  Located approx 20 miles south of the Internationally recognised Gold Award Dark  Sky Park at the Galloway Forest. With our beautiful night sky free of light  pollution viewing the planets, nebulae or galaxies is unforgettable.  Whether you are deeply interested in Astronomy or you just want to experience  seeing a sky full of stars, we can take you on a journey around our Solar System  and far beyond to see the many wonders of the Universe.  Night sky tours are available to non residents too.  Please bring warm clothes, coats and hats - it can be cold at night at any time of  the year. Our primary aim at the Centre is to ensure guests get maximum enjoyment from  a visit. 
Best Wishes for Christmas from  Galloway Astronomy Centre                discover the Dark Skies of Galloway Home
