To mark the annual Dark Skies Festival 2024, the Sedbergh & District History Society exhibition entitled ‘Dark Skies Above Us’ is being shown again in St Andrew’s Church in Sedbergh from the 19th-26th February.  

The panels showcase what can be seen in the night sky, as well as how it has been observed through the years. They also show the telescopes that have been used, notable astronomers, how the Dark Sky movement came about, and the environmental aspects of Dark Skies.
