Meet at Gwaelod y Rhos car park SN 902673.

Come and join the Elan Valley Dark Skies Team and watch the most spectacular meteor shower of the year, the Perseids. The team will be on hand to show you some constellations, the Milky Way and will have their telescopes ready to view some celestial objects in closer detail. We will also see some spectacular shooting stars under the skies of the Elan Valley Dark Sky Park.

Please note, this is a weather dependent event. If you would like to come along, it is essential that you book your place by emailing us at so that we can keep in touch.

Please bring warm clothing, stout boots, a blanket to lie on and a torch, plus £2 for drinks and snacks if desired – or bring your own! We will take you up a gravelled forestry track so please ensure your vehicle is in good condition. Due to the nature of the location only people over the age of 12 can attend – parents are responsible for their children. Places are limited. Meet at Gwaelod y Rhos car park at 9.30pm.

We will reserve a back-up date of 13th August should the weather not play ball on the 12th!
