Star Party
The National Botanic Garden of Wales is hosting a Star Party, in partnership with Swansea Astronomical Society and AstroCymru, with afternoon astronomy activities from 2pm until 5:30pm, and the Star Party from 6pm until 10pm.
Afternoon astronomy activities cost £3 per child, with a Meteors & Maths (age approx. 8+) workshop running for half an hour starting at 2pm, 3pm ,4pm & 5pm. Rocket making and D2E sessions with AstroCymru will run from 2pm till 5:30pm.
The Star Party at 6pm costs £3 per child, if they have paid for the afternoon activities there won’t be a need to pay again. Accompanying adults are free but donations are welcomed. A family ticket is £6 (2 adults and up to 4 children).
For guides/scouts/brownies/cubs etc. groups, the cost for the Star Party is £3 per child, with accompanying adults free.
We will be able to explore the Moon, just past its first quarter and, if we are lucky, we might see Uranus & Neptune. We will also use Orion to star hop so we can find the Pleiades.
While the stargazing is weather dependant we will be able to run activities inside the Great Glass House if the weather is poor. Food and drink will be available in the Med Café.
