From Iain Todd of Sky at Night Magazine;
45,000 acres of Elan Valley are protected against light pollution as a result of the region’s Dark Sky Park silver-tier status, making this one of the best places for astronomy in Wales.
And that’s saying something, considering Wales’s status as a stargazing mecca.
There are regular events held at Elan Valley throughout the year, as well as amazing scenery to enjoy during the day time.
If star parties are your thing, you might enjoy Solarsphere, an astronomy and music festival held near Builth Wells every August.
Chelynne Campion is a Production/ Sales Assistant for EarthSky. Her family just purchased a telescope, and she's now learning to be a stargazer!
