Event description

Description

This is a ticketed event - it is not free

Come and Join us stargazing in the crisp winter air at Brockholes. Our local astronomers will have telescopes on hand to show you the wonders of the night sky and perhaps even see a few shooting stars - The Quadrantids meteor shower is an above average shower, with up to 40 meteors per hour at its peak.

We will also have a first quarter moon in the sky which will set shortly after midnight leaving fairly dark skies for what could be a good meteor show.

The event will go ahead cloudy or clear, if the weather doesn’t play along, we will be inside talking about astronomy, showing fascinating images and films while there will be telescopes and meteorites to wonder at. Please book early - places are limited.

This event is only suitable for children aged 8+ who are able to sit and listen to a speaker.

The ticket price includes free parking and hot drinks and biscuits.

Come dressed for the weather wearing warm clothing and sturdy footwear.

Meet on the floating Visitor Village ready for a 8.00pm start we should be finished around 10.30pm
