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

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.
