I didn't even know there was a space observatory at Knighton until I went on a trip arranged for our local guides. This was a most rewarding experience as I enjoy listening to technical experts and Jay Tate certainly provides a polished presentation about how planets are formed and are then battered by asteroids. With a planaterium to show the birth of stars and with various samples of moon rock and meteorites Jay gave such a coherent explanation of what whizzes around our universe that it was needless to ask any questions.
The observatory is perched high in the Powys hills so do take refreshments and sit outside to enjoy the earthly view after the tour. Fascinating and highly recommended.
