It's the Orionids Meteor Shower

Event date:
21st October 2019
Walltown Country Park, CA8 7HZ

Discover the magic of the Orionids 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.
