25-Apr-2013 : Pen y Fan by Moonlight

  • by

There’s a partial lunar eclipse visible from the UK on 25th April 2013 (19:51-20:07-20:23) and I’m hoping to take a stroll up Pen y Fan, the highest point of the Brecon Beacons, to watch it. As it’s always a full moon when a lunar eclipse takes place, head torches may not be necessary.

The start point for the walk will be the the lay-by near Storey Arms, which is about an hour and forty minutes from Gloucester, so we should be aiming to leave Gloucester before 6.00pm so that we’re on the mountain when the eclipse starts.
