Why not come and view our nearest star in all its glory? Using specialist telescopes Dark Sky Wales will show the surface of the Sun. You will see sunspots, prominences and filaments and best of all you’ll be able to take pictures too!
This event is free, and there is no need to book, but you may have to wait for your turn to use the telescopes. The event is primarily for children, but families are welcome too.
