Join the team from RSPB South Stack for an evening of Dark Skies and Welsh mythology! We’ll venture out onto the mountain for a guided walk with a difference. In partnership with Priosect NOS, we’ll watch the moon rising from Anglesey’s highest mountain whilst learning about the connections between our stars and the myths and legends handed down through many Welsh generations. Please note that the event is weather-dependent and requires good fitness.

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.
