Perseid Meteor Shower with Dark Sky Wales

Details

Come and enjoy a night of stargazing activities, including a tour of the night sky in our mobile planetarium, and fascinating talks from members of Dark Sky Wales If the skys are clear you can also view the award winning dark skies of the Brecon Beacons National Park through a selection of telescopes.

The jewel in the sky will be the Perseid meteor shower and Martin Griffiths, Lead Presenter Dark Sky Wales will also give a presentation on this fascinating astronomical event.

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 perseids..

If the weather is against us, this event will still go ahead with the presentation and mobile planetarium.
