Dark sky celebrations to light up August

Two nighttime celebrations will light up Orkney skies this August.

Two Orkney locations are to host spectacular night-time celebrations this August — but the exact details of these events are being kept under wraps to all but those attending.

Green Space Dark Skies is bringing together thousands of people across the UK, to create large-scale outdoor artworks in 20 of the country’s most outstanding landscapes between April and September.

The Scottish locations include events in the Orkney Mainland and North Ronaldsay.

Registration is open to take part in the Mainland event. The North Ronaldsay event is by invitation only.
