Join Astronomers from Dark Sky Wales for a truly unique Stargazing experience!

Begin your evening by taking a journey of discovery within a digital mobile planetarium where you will be guided around the night sky hearing tales of the constellations from both Greek and Celtic perspectives, before venturing deeper into our universe revealing details of the planets, nebula and galaxies.

If the weather allows, Dark Sky Wales astronomers will also have telescopes set up to look at the Sun before waiting for darkness when the magic of the Gower sky comes to life!

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.
