Penbont House Tearooms, Bed and Breakfast
Penbont House, Elan Valley, LH6 5HS
Join the Elan Valley team for a special evening to explore all things celestial at Penbont House and the Cosmic Cwtsh (formally known as Tynllidiart Stargazing Shelter).
Meet at Penbont House for a light supper, then Pete Williamson (FRAS) will give a sparkling talk on what is in our night sky over the coming season. Then, if the skies are clear, we will head up to Cosmic Cwtsh, a remote observing shelter on Tynllidiart Hill, 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 to reveal lunar features, double stars, star clusters, etc. Please dress warmly as we will be on a hilltop and it will be very cold.
Please bring a torch. Spaces are limited. Cost £20 per person.
Please note that this event has already taken place on 06/04/2022
