This is an astronomy and walking hostel event in the Black Mountains in Wales which has very dark skies.

The event is led by Ken Elliott who is a retired professional astronomer, who will bring a 6" (150mm) refractor on a computer controlled portable mount.

The date has been chosen on a date when we can see 4 planets - Saturn Jupiter, possibly Neptune and Pluto as well as the moon. If anyone has their own telescope or binoculars, do please bring them along.

On the Friday evening we will do the usual bring a dish for a buffet.

On Saturday and Sunday we will go for walks in the mountains of a length and difficulty decided by the weather and the desires and abilities of those who attend.

We hope to observe both Friday and Saturday evenings

The Sunday walk will be relatively short to allow people to get home at a reasonable time.

Dogs: This event is not suitable for dogs.
