Enjoy a unique opportunity to be part of a group of like-minded individuals and discover the beauty of dark skies free from light pollution.
Experienced astronomers will guide you around the night sky showing how to find constellations; you’ll learn both mythology and the science of astronomy.
Telescopes will enable you to view incredible deep-sky objects, including star clusters, nebulae and galaxies. You might also see shooting stars and, on moonless nights, amazing views of the Milky Way arching across the sky.
These stargazing sessions are ideal for beginners; no experience is necessary.
And if you know someone who would enjoy this stargazing session in the Brecon Beacons, you can buy them a stargazing experience voucher.
