Snowdonia Solar System Trail Launched, Wesh, UK

The Sun will be a permanent fixture in Blaenau Ffestiniog from now on thanks to The Snowdonia Solar System Trail, which was launched at the Oakley Arms Hotel, Maentwrog on Thursday 29th of November.

With funding from Arloesi Gwynedd Wledig and the Snowdonia Partnership Fund the Snowdonia Solar System Trail was created by local children and artists Rachel Rosen and Andy Birch with the aim of highlighting Snowdonia’s designation as an International Dark Sky Reserve. Planets will be placed at ten different businesses across Gwynedd with the Sun at Shop Antur ‘Stiniog on the High Street in Blaenau Ffestiniog, with each piece of art teaching visitors more about that specific planet. And as an interplanetary trail, people can also gain an understanding of the Solar System’s scale.
