Stargazing at Lake Vyrnwy

Stargazing at Lake Vyrnwy

Friday 4th November 2022 from 18:00pm to 21:00pm

RSPB Lake Vyrnwy - Llyn Efyrnwy
Llanwddyn, Oswestry, Shropshire, SY10 0LZ

Lake Vyrnwy is the perfect place to discover the stars overhead. Join the team from RSPB Lake Vyrnwy and Snowdonia National Park’s Dark Sky Officer and learn why our famous Dark Skies are so crucial for humans, biodiversity and our view of the stars.

If the weather allows, there will be a stargazing session where you can use binoculars and telescopes to explore our beautiful night sky, learn to identify constellations and plants and maybe even see a shooting star or two! If the weather is poor, there’ll be extra time to chat and learn about all things space!

Please note that this has already taken place on 04/11/2022

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.
