Come and join the Elan Valley Dark Sky Team for a dark sky evening in the heart of the Claerwen Valley. After grabbing a cup of tea, we’ll present a talk about what is in the night sky, whether it’s constellations or objects you can see with the unaided eye, binoculars or telescopes. If the sky is clear afterwards, we will show you some of those celestial objects with our telescopes. Booking is essential.

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.
