A New Trend in Fusion Festivals

This weekend sees me returning to the great outdoors for my first Solarsphere Festival experience. It’s part of a growing trend in astrotourism activities and events around the world and I’m excited to be visiting a part of Wales (Builth Wells) I don’t know and combining 3 of my favourite things; travel, astronomy and music.

The festival coincides with occurrence of the annual Perseid meteor shower, so I’m taking this timely opportunity to bring you the first in my category of ‘Earth & Sky’ posts –  featuring different destinations and some celestial little anecdotes associated with them.

Later in the series, I’ll be sharing a unique picture-postcard moment from Indonesia, giving you a close-up view of a strange encounter at a Spanish cathedral and, for those who love great theatre, I’ll tell you where you can find the greatest show ‘off’ Earth – clue: next year it’ll be touring right across North America!

And of course I’ll let you know how I got on at Solarsphere and what I learned from the weekend.

Thanks for joining me on these Earth & Sky journeys with a different perspective, I hope you enjoy reading about them.
