The Geminid meteor shower is regarded as the King of meteor showers, the best of the year, with up to 120 multi coloured meteors each hour, visible on dark skies, and moonless evenings. This year, we have a new moon that will serve us well, as the skies will be as dark as they can be!

As well as the shooting stars, you will be able to use our high tech instruments, computers and cameras, to make your night unforgettable – including talks in the classroom and tours of the facility. To the backdrop of birds on the lake…it’s magical!
