The stars were just magical the other night, with the Milky Way clearly visible beyond Derwen cabin, looking West. It was the perfect night for stargazing. Which is just as well as we were lucky to have Dafydd Morgan, from Mynyddoedd Cambrian Mountains, staying in the cabin. Whilst here, he took some photos to celebrate our dark skies.
