Come and celebrate Wales Dark Sky Week with a special event at Penbont House.

After a light buffet, join the Elan Valley Dark Skies Team as they give a talk about the Elan Valley International Dark Sky Park and what to look out for in the night sky during the spring. There will also be a demonstration of the type of stargazing equipment you can use to get to know the night sky.

If the skies are clear, we will head up to Cosmic Cwtsh, our stargazing shelter, for a spot of stargazing. This event is suitable for beginners. This event is suitable for people aged ten and upwards. £12 per person – booking is essential. Meet at Penbont House at 6.30 pm.

This event takes place as part of Welsh Dark Skies Week 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.
