As a thank you to our customers for previously booking a Dark Sky Wales stargazing event, or purchasing gift vouchers, we would like to offer you a 15% discount on astronomy or astrophotography events and gift vouchers.

This offer is not yet open to anyone else as we would like to give you the opportunity to, yet again, experience a unique stargazing or astrophotography event. Or, perhaps you would like to purchase gift vouchers for friends and family so they can also experience the fantastic dark night sky.

We have had some amazing experiences and captured some fantastic images so far this year. Favourites include; Midsummer’s Night where we saw some amazing noctilucent clouds during the Summer Solstice, spotting Jupiter near the Milky Way core during our annual Spanish Observatory event, and of course, meeting none other than Carol Vorderman as a guest during her BBC Radio Wales show!

New for September 2019

The GCSE astronomy provided by Dark Sky Wales offers a firm grounding in the study of the Sun-Earth-Moon system, the Solar System, the Milky Way Galaxy and the wider Universe.

Studying this course requires some scientific and mathematical knowledge and computer literacy. While this course is intended for adults, students aged 14 and upwards will be considered for enrolment on a case by case basis.

Lastly, earlier this year, we announced plans for our vision of Planetariwm Wales.

In this short video, Tim Smit of the Eden Project explains how a Planetarium here in Hirwaun, Aberdare can be “something that is genuinely world class…”

Wales’ first national planetarium aims to be:
  • A landmark visitor attraction with market penetration across the UK and internationally
  • A centre for the promotion and support of science, technology, engineering, and maths education across Wales
  • A facility for leading-edge research and development in the field of digital visualisation, hosting university graduate and post-graduate courses
  • A beacon for Welsh economic development in the field of digital media, fostering relationships with the global industry
  • A showcase for the wider redevelopment of the Tower Regeneration estate
  • A catalyst for future employment investment and the development of science and technology business along the western section of the Heads of the Valleys corridor
  • A centre for the digital delivery of world class entertainment and sporting events

If you would like to find out more or even become involved in helping us make our vision become a reality, then please get in touch.

Thank you for your continued support.
