Gwyfynod Gwych ac Adeiladu Blychau Ystlumod

Gosod trapiau gwyfynod gyda’r nos a chanfod gwyfynod yn y bore.

Fel rhan o Wythnos Awyr Dywyll Cymru 2022, ymunwch â ni ym Mhlas Newydd, Llangollen, wrth i ni osod trap symudol ar gyfer gwyfynod i weld pa wyfynod nosol sy’n bresennol yn Nyffryn Dyfrdwy. Dysgwch sut i nodi rhai o’r rhywogaethau rhyfeddol hyn, pam rydym ni’n dal gwyfynod a sut gallwn ni helpu i’w diogelu yn ein hamgylchedd ein hunain. Gyda’r nos, gallwch hefyd roi cynnig ar adeiladu eich blwch ystlumod eich hun, er mwyn helpu i gadw ein bywyd gwyllt nosol.

Ymunwch â ni o doriad gwawr drannoeth i ganfod unrhyw rywogaethau a gafodd eu dal dros nos!

Cwrdd ym Mhlas Newydd. Gwisgwch ddillad cynnes ac esgidiau addas. Yn addas ar gyfer plant 8+ oed

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.
