Sunday 21st April 2024 from 21:30pm to 23:00pm

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

Enjoy a unique opportunity to be part of a group of like-minded individuals and discover the moonlit skies above the Brecon Beacons.

Experienced astronomers will guide you around the night sky, showing you how to find constellations; you’ll learn both mythology and the science of astronomy.

Telescopes will enable you to view the Moon in incredible detail, revealing mountain ranges and vast craters.

These sessions are ideal for beginners; no experience is necessary.

And if you know someone who would enjoy this session in the Brecon Beacons, you can buy them a stargazing experience voucher.

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.
