Welsh Dark Skies & Astrophotography

Wednesday 23rd November 2022 from 17:00pm to 19:00pm

RSPB South Stack
South Stack Road, Holyhead , Gwynedd, LL65 1YH

There’s nothing quite like a still Winter’s eve, so why not join the team at RSPB South Stack this November for an evening celebrating our Welsh Dark Skies? We will be joined by our local Dark Skies Officer, who will be giving a talk on the importance of our Dark Skies for us as humans and biodiversity. We will also have an Astrophotography presentation and demonstration by a local award-winning photographer. We will venture out onto the reserve for some moongazing to end the evening.

Please note that this has already taken place on 23/11/2022

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.
