Come and join us for a festive stargazing party at Cosmic Cwtsh, our stargazing shelter in the Elan Valley. If the skies are clear, we will head up to Cosmic Cwtsh for a quick rundown on how to spot constellations and impress your friends. Our dark sky team will be on hand to give you a guided tour of the universe using telescopes and binoculars. As a bonus, the Geminid Meteor shower will peak, so we may spot ‘shooting stars’.
Please note that this has already taken place on 14/12/2022

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.
