16th-Stargazing night at the Brecon Beacons National Park Visitor Centre
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.
There will also be a facinating talk from Martin Griffiths, the lead presenter for Dark Sky Wales. This wonderful time of year will also allow those participating to see the wonders of the late winter sky. If the weather is against us, this event will still go ahead with the presentation and mobile planatarium.
