The LAS Equinox Sky Camp is the largest star party in the UK. Hundreds of amateur astronomers meet at Kelling Heath, Norfolk, for a weekend of observing and events.

The main event day is Saturday, with trade stands, second-hand 'astroboot' stalls, talks and a telescope tour. Sunday tends to start rather slowly after a hard night observing or in the bar. So please be quiet and allow others to sleep in. Day visitors are welcome, but most people stay overnight.

Two fields are devoted exclusively to astronomers during this weekend but a strict 'no lights' policy is enforced on these two fields over the whole week (from the previous Monday).

There is no charge for day visitors, but anyone wishing to stay for the evening is warned that car movements cannot take place on the observing field after dark, so they must park some distance away.

Kelling Heath offer a special reduced rate for Sky Camp campers. Tell them you are attending Sky Camp for the reduced rate and a pitch on one of the fields dedicated to astronomy. Kelling Heath also have lodges and mobile homes. These are located a little way from the observing field and are suitable for family groups.

For those who wish to extend their observing beyond the main weekend, Kelling Heath offer pitches on the observing fields over an extended period as listed above. Again do remember to tell them you are attending Sky Camp. Please be aware, the strict no-lights rule is enforced for the whole week.
