Events will include talks by world class speakers including Dr. Luis Flores Castillo of CERN Switzerland and the University of Hong Kong, Professor Michael Burton, Director of the Armagh Observatory and Planetarium, and Susan McKenna-Lawlor, Professor Emeritus at Maynooth University”Mayo Dark Sky Park boasts some of the most pristine skies in Europe – one awestruck visitor was heard to remark “The starlight is casting shadows!” Happily, this year’s festival also coincides with the 2017 International Observe the Moon night on October 28th. Observers will have the best of both worlds – a little moon gazing to start with, but the moon will set around midnight, revealing the true wonders of the park’s dark sky observing sites. Mayo’s rugged Atlantic seaboard offers a dramatic backdrop to a relaxed and fun-filled festival. Full programme of events and everything needed to plan your trip are on the festival website at www.mayodarkskyfestival.ie.
