Starry Skies Campaign Update

Due to the threat of Covid-19, all our Starry Skies events and talks have been postponed until Jan-March 2021. We will continue our work behind the scenes, influencing planning decisions, but work on this Campaign will restart in Autumn 2020. We hope you can make some of our winter 2021 events!

2020 Star Count

To celebrate our starry skies and to help to protect our view of the stars, we’re inviting the nation to become ‘citizen scientists’ and take part in Star Count – a cosmic census that will help map our view of the stars and the impact of light pollution across the country.


North Somerset Planning Committee last night turned down Bristol Airport’s expansion planning application by a majority of 18 - 7, after nearly 5 hours of debate.

Stargazing opportunities near you

We recently launched a local Starry Skies initiative, providing opportunities for local groups, families, and young people – especially from urban areas - to engage with the night sky through a series of stargazing sessions across the Bath and wider Avon area.

The harmful effects of light pollution on night animals, local wildlife, and even our own health is the subject of an event being staged by CPRE, The Countryside Charity (Avonside branch) with TV wildlife expert Chris Sperring, and astronomer Bob Mizon MBE in Bath on Thursday 14 November.
