LEONIDS METEOR SHOWER
On Friday 16th November, the Centre will reopen at 6.30pm to try and spot some shooting stars associated with the Leonids meteor shower. This meteor shower occurs when Earth passes through the debris trail of comet Tempel-Tuttle and gives rise to fast moving meteors between November 15th - 20th. The peak time for the shower is actually on November 18th. In addition Earth is also moving through the debris trail left by comet Encke, which gives rise to the Taurids meteor shower. These meteors are slower moving meteors and occur between October 20th - November 30th, with a maximum on 12th November. Come and join us and take the opportunity to spot these shooting stars as well as looking through some of the country's historic telescopes (weather permitting) at some interesting deep sky objects. Please note if the weather is unsuitable for viewing there is a cloudy night contingency plan with a planetarium style talk guiding you through the stars that can be seen at this time of the year. If you are intending to visit during the day on the 16th November then you are entitled to a special offer admission in the evening of just £5 per person on production of your entrance receipt.
