Stargazing in the Brecon Beacons with Dark Sky Wales

Stargazing in the Brecon Beacons with Dark Sky Wales

Thursday 8th February 2024 from 21:00pm to 22:30pm

Brecon - Libanus Mountain Centre
Libanus, Brecon, Powys, LD3 8ER, Wales

Enjoy a unique opportunity to be part of a group of like-minded individuals and discover the beauty of dark skies free from light pollution.

Experienced astronomers will guide you around the night sky, showing you how to find constellations; you’ll learn both mythology and the science of astronomy.

Telescopes will enable you to view incredible deep-sky objects, including star clusters, nebulae and galaxies. You might also see shooting stars and, on moonless nights, amazing views of the Milky Way arching across the sky.

These stargazing sessions are ideal for beginners; no experience is necessary.

And if you know someone who would enjoy this stargazing session in the Brecon Beacons, you can buy them a stargazing experience voucher.

Please note that this has already taken place on 08/02/2024

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.
