Brecon - Libanus Mountain Centre
Libanus, Brecon, Powys, LD3 8ER, Wales
An opportunity to explore the Brecon Beacons at night with a fully qualified Mountain Guide and Dark Skies Ambassador as part of the Dark Skies Festival. During the evening we will explore Mynydd Illtud and Twyn y Gaer.
Fingers crossed for a clear night as our location will provide an ideal vantage point to see the Milky Way, major constellations, bright nebulas and even meteor showers, a must for any star gazer!
