Group Stargazing in the Brecon Beacons with Dark Sky Wales

Group Stargazing in the Brecon Beacons with Dark Sky Wales

Tuesday 29th October 2019 from 19:30pm to 22:30pm

Brecon - Libanus Mountain Centre
Libanus, Brecon, Powys, LD3 8ER, Wales

A unique opportunity for you to be part of a group of 40 like minded individuals enjoying the dark skies of Wales. On the evening you will be accompanied by two astronomers who will guide you around the night sky from constellations to nebula, learning the mythology and science of astronomy. No experience needed just an enthusiasm to learn more about the night sky and why not bring a camera or use ours to record your experience. All astronomical equipment is provided but please wrap up warm as the mountain can become very cold.

This event is featured on Virgin Experience Days. If you know someone who would enjoy such an experience why not give them the gift of a stargazing experience voucher!?

Please note that this event has already taken place on 29/10/2019

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.
