Arsyllfa Busby-Braden Observatory

Arsyllfa Busby-Braden Observatory

Plas Bodfa, Llangoed, Gwynedd, LL58 8ND, Wales

The Arsyllfa Busby-Braden Observatory is named in honour of the late Robert Busby and Phil Braden, two enthusiastic local astronomers who loved sharing their passion and curiosity about the night sky. As of early 2024, the Seiriol Men’s Shed and other dedicated volunteers are renovating the project.

The location is a partner with Prosiect Nos (North Wales Dark Skies Partnership) and the Anglesey Astronomy Society with whom they frequently co-host stargazing events, as well as a host location for the Welsh Dark Skies Week.
