The jewel in the sky will be the Geminid meteor shower and Martin Griffiths, former senior lecturer in astronomy at the University of South Wales will also give a presentation on the Christmas Star. Martin’s wonderful description of the mystery surrounding this well know astronomical event is captivating and will leave participants wanting more.
Dark Sky Wales with their mobile planetarium will take you on a virtual tour of the heavens, and hopefully the skies will be crisp and clear so Allan Trow and Martin Griffiths can also use the telescopes and binoculars to guide you around the heavens and spot those all-important geminids.
This wonderful time of year will also allow those participating to see the wonders of the winter sky such as the great hunter Orion and his wonderful nebula, the seven sisters, Taurus the Bull and the mighty Jupiter.
