BRECON BEACONS 2-HOUR STARGAZING EXPERIENCE
Explore the night sky from the Brecon Beacons International Dark Sky Reserve with an astronomer as your guide. We’ll meet you at the Brecon Beacons National Park Visitor Centre near Libanus (about 5 miles SW of Brecon) for a stunning adventure out across the cosmos. Your 2-hour Brecon Beacons stargazing experience includes a laser-guided tour of the stars and constellations that we can see from the Brecon Beacons, and views through one of our large portable telescopes of star systems, star clusters, nebulae and distant galaxies far beyond our own. If we have the moon and / or planets in the sky we’ll visit them too with the telescope. This is a private stargazing experience run exclusively for the voucher recipient plus any family members and friends they wish to invite to share in the experience, up to a maximum of 15 persons.
In the 2-hour Brecon Beacons stargazing experience gift box you get:
- 2-hour stargazing experience gift voucher for the Brecon Beacons National Park location valid for 2 years from month of issue
- Instructions on how to use the voucher
- Information about the stargazing location we use at the Brecon Beacons National Park Visitor Centre, plus map and directions
Our 2-hour Brecon Beacons stargazing experience makes for an amazing (and unusual!) Christmas or birthday gift for anyone with an interest in astronomy, space or the night sky in general. It is suitable for individuals, couples, families and small groups. it’s great for kids too. All children under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult. If you’ve ever wanted to see the Milky Way from a dark sky stargazing site, or explore the hidden universe through a big telescope, our 2-hour Brecon Beacons stargazing experience might be just the ticket!
When can the voucher be used?
You can use your Brecon Beacons stargazing voucher on a week night or weekend night anytime of the year, except 24 -31 December, and subject to our astronomer’s availability. We recommend that you book your stargazing experience 8 – 12 weeks in advance for best choice of dates. You have 2-years from date of issue to use the stargazing voucher, so giving you plenty of time to choose a date that suits and for Dark Sky Telescope Hire to find a clear night on which to run the experience for you.
What if it is raining or cloudy?
Naturally cloud and rain is always a threat. When using the voucher to book the stargazing experience we recommend that you choose 2 or 3 nights initially on which you’d be happy for us to run the experience. If it is cloudy / raining on all selected nights then we’ll simply roll the experience forward to an alternative date that works. We can keep rolling the experience forward until we are able to run the stargazing for you.
