What happens on the day
Looking to start your stargazing adventure with a group of friends and family? Look no further!
On arrival, you’ll meet with the Dark Sky Wales staff, who will provide you with an initial briefing on the area and what to expect from your evening.
You'll then be taken to the Brecon Beacons Observatory, where astronomers will use the observatory and assorted portable telescopes to show you numerous celestial objects and be on hand to answer any questions.
In the event of bad visibility, you’ll be provided with informative astronomical talks in a warm room located near the observatory.
