Enjoy the show of the Lyrid meteor shower in the dark skies of the Grizedale forest
We will be your guide taking you along an incredible journey through the constellations and along the Milky Way, while showing you how to find all sorts of heavenly objects for yourself. There will also be powerful telescopes for you to gaze through,but we will also help you to see the spectacle of the meteor shower with just your own eyes.
