Dark Sky Event a Great Success!

The Discover Llangorse and Bwlch Group organised a successful Astronomy Evening on January 3rd 2014 in Llangors Youth & Community Centre – the Event was a sell out!

Dark Sky Wales brought a large Planetarium demonstrated by Allan Trow, and Martin Griffiths from University of South Wales gave a fascinating talk. There was also an exhibition with items for all ages from Rockets and Space Modules to details of the Solar System, Galaxies plus Photographs of the stars and night sky. Refreshments including two types of soup were available and were greatly appreciated. Although skies were not clear for viewing there was plenty to occupy those present and it was great to see youngsters taking an interest in Astronomy.
