Dark Sky Evening and Book Launch

Saturday 25th November 2023 from 18:30pm to 20:30pm

Penbont House Tearooms, Bed and Breakfast
Penbont House, Elan Valley, LH6 5HS

Join us at Penbont House where we will get together with Dani Robertson, Dark Sky Officer for Eryri National Park (Snowdonia), for a special evening celebrating dark skies and the launch of her new book, ‘All Through the Night’.

After a buffet, Dani will talk about her enthusiasm for the breathtaking dark skies of Wales and her tireless work in raising awareness of this precious resource, sharing with you the excitement and adventure she has found outside when everyone else is tucked up in bed.

As a society, we have closed our curtains to the darkness, but Dani will encourage you to get out there and enjoy the night skies through her talk.

Please note that this has already taken place on 25/11/2023

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.
