We will be releasing a collection of digital content on our DarkSkiesFest Facebook page on Saturday 3 October to mark what would have been Marlborough's first festival dedicated to the night sky.
Covering a range of topics, there will be something for everyone, and to whet your appetite here's an image from Marlborough's own Gavin James - an exceptional astrophotographer who does "back garden astronomy". 
For a taste of what's to come, here's an introduction by Charles Barclay, Director of the Blackett Observatory in the grounds of Marlborough College.
 
 
 
Against a dark background, swirls and peaks of pinks and purples light up the centre appearing like clouds, with dots of light from stars all around
 This stunning image is the Wizard Nebula and was taken by Gavin right here in Marlborough!  
 
We're calling the event Marlborough Dark Skies Fest at Home - keep an eye on updates from here and use our hashtag #MarlboroughDarkSkiesFest to join in!
