Group Stargazing in the Brecon Beacons with Dark Sky Wales

Group Stargazing in the Brecon Beacons with Dark Sky Wales

Monday 7th December 2020 from 19:00pm to 21:00pm

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

A unique opportunity for you to be part of a group of 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 nebulae, learning the mythology and science of astronomy. No experience needed just an enthusiasm to learn more about the night sky! 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 07/12/2020

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.
