Event description

Description

Meet our Star maker, who will give an introduction to meteors, asteroids and meteorites.

Orionids tend to be active every year in the month of October, usually peaking around the time of our event.  At its peak up to 20 meteors can be visible every hour.  The Orionid Meteor Shower is one of two meteor showers created by debris from Comet Halley (The Eta Aquarids in May being the second). It's called Orionids because the meteors seem to emerge or radiate from the constellation Orion.

Suitable for families with children 12 years and older.The Kiosk serving soup and other refreshments will be open during the event.   Afterwards, attendees are welcome to stay to view the meteors (weather permitting) so we'd suggest you bring your own seating and appropriate warm clothing.   

Places for this talk should be booked in advance to avoid disappointment.
