The 2468ft Pumlumon Fawr is one of the best places to see the sunset in the Cambrian Mountains. Come prepared for the diminishing light and the promise of a clear sky. The dark skies of the Cambrian Mountains will reveal the amazing night sky in all its glory as the sun disappears over the western horizon over Ceredigion’s Cardigan Bay.

Appropriate clothing and footwear essential as are headtorches with new batteries. Please also bing spare batteries and a spare torch too. Please bring food and drink too. We aim to return to a local inn afterwards. This free event requires prior registration via the Eventbrite website.

This project has received funding through the Welsh Government Rural Communities – Rural Development Programme 2014-2020, which is funded by the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development and the Welsh Government.

Please note that this event has already taken place on 13/09/2019

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.
