Event description

Description

The source of the Lyrids is debris from the trail of a comet C/1861 G1 Thatcher. It is the strongest annual shower from debris of a long-period comet. The Lyrids have been observed and reported since 687 BC; no other modern shower has been recorded as far back in time.

Event Info:
We look forward to welcoming you to our space operations centre based on the former RAF Alconbury airfield to observe back scatter reflections from the peaks of January's strongest meteor shower and or first observation of 2020!

Our open observations are fun evenings where you will get the chance to experience a working radio observatory exploring several different techniques to gather data from meteor observations.
We provide refreshments and free parking for all our guests.
