Brecon Beacons International Dark Sky Reserve

We would like to thank:

- the Brecon Beacons National Park Authority
- the Allt B&B guesthouse (situated in a remote corner of the Beacons)
- Countryfile, and
- the Brecon Beacons International Dark Sky Reserve

for the following video clips of the dark skies in the Brecon Beacons which is only the fifth destination in the world to be granted international dark sky reserve status and is probably the best place in the UK to view stars and planets, making it a very special destination for stargazers. Many events are organised in the Brecon Beacons for visitors to enjoy stargazing, and on a clear moonless night there you can see the Milky Way, many major constellations, nebulas and, at the right time of the year, meteor showers!
