Event Name:  Draconids Meteor Shower at the Observatory Science Centre
Event Description:  The Draconids owe their name to the constellation Draco the Dragon, and are created when the Earth passes through the dust debris left by comet 21 P/ Giacobini-Zinner. What to expect on our Observatory Science Centre Open Evenings. If you are interested in the night sky and wondered what it would be like to look at the stars, planets and the moon through some of the country's largest telescopes, here is your opportunity! Join us on an open evening and take a glimpse of what it would have been like to use these amazing instruments. We plan a cloudy night contingency talk which is usually a planetarium show in our large white geodesic tent - if there are enough people in the Centre. If you have mobility issues please contact the centre for further details if required. Our site is very dark and we keep lighting to a minimum to preserve night vision and make sure you have the best possible experience in terms of viewing the night sky. This inevitably means that there are areas that are dimly lit or very dark. With high walkways, ramps and steps throughout the Centre you need to take great care when moving around. PLEASE BRING A TORCH and wear sensible footwear. Follow the link to our website for more information:
