It's the Geminids Meteor Show

Event date:
13th December 2019
Walltown Country Park, CA8 7HZ

Discover the magic of the Geminids Meteor Shower, which takes place later tonight (weather permitting) and find out where comets come from.

If clouds prevent us from viewing the starlit sky, we will use the radio-telescope instead to detect meteors whizzing through the ionosphere at thousands of miles per hour!

This event is aimed at beginners 11 years and older. Weather permitting, telescopes and binoculars will be available for you to use. Refreshments will also be available.

Please bring warm clothes and footwear and a torch.

Please note - Outdoor observations are weather permitting. If the weather is poor, a presentation will go ahead indoors with cloud cover monitored to allow as much stargazing as possible.
