Curious about how the Universe started and where our star and planet came from? Meet the friendly astronomers from the Abergavenny Astronomy Society and Usk Astronomy Group and find out more!

How about the Milky Way, the Zodiac, other stars, exo-planets, ESA & NASA space missions, or additional space or cosmos-related questions? Our enthusiastic members will attempt to give answers (if possible).

View our star, the Sun, through a solar telescope (weather permitting!).

As well as displays and presentations, there will be planetarium shows hosted by the Usk Astronomical Society.

Free Entrance with a fee of £1 for the planetarium shows.

Event darkness

The Moon has a big impact on the visibility of celestial bodies in the night sky. Try to plan your stargazing when there is no bright Moon at night as this is when the skies will be at their darkest.

The below chart shows if and when the skies will be at their darkest during this event. Moonlight is shown in light yellow and the Sun's twilight in light blue. Midnight on the date shown is shown as a white line with sunset to the left and sunrise the next morning to the right. A black background with stars shows the best times for stargazing.
