The Rollright Stones have been awarded Dark Sky Discovery Status.

To celebrate, Chipping Norton Amateur Astronomy Group (CNAAG) and the Rollright Trust will be accepting the award on Saturday at Long Compton Village Hall with a visit to the Rollright Stones, weather permitting.

There will also be an evening of talks, a viewing of the documentary Standing with Stones and a display of telescopes and images. Dark Sky Discovery Status is awarded to areas which have exceptionally clear night skies above them. The event starts at 5pm. This picture by the Kingstone was taken by CNAAG member Mel Gigg.
