Located on the foreshore of Swansea Bay within the prestigious Marina Development is a twin towered structure that has been likened to a space rocket on its launch pad. The observatory houses the largest telescope in Wales. The ground floor exhibition room is the first contact point for visitors to the site. It is here, during the summer, that you can explore the wonders of the universe by browsing through the many posters and astronomical books. During the winter and Spring months, the Society organises Open Nights, or "Marina Towers Star Parties" for the public to come along and view the heavens through the main telescopes and members' telescopes that will be assembled on site
