A reminder that tonight you may be able to view the Supermoon – so wrap up warm, pack a flask and some snacks and head for the hills. Check out our top ten stargazing spots for some inspiration on where to go.
We thought we’d remind you on a clear night in the Brecon Beacons, you can see the Milky Way, major constellations, bright nebulas and even meteor showers. It’s enough to make anyone starry-eyed.
Check out the upcoming stargazing events run by 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.
