Geminids Meteor Shower at Cresswell Village hall

Geminids Meteor Shower at Cresswell Village hall

Thursday 14th December 2023 from 20:00pm to 22:30pm

Cresswell Village Hall
Morpeth, Newcastle, Northumberland, NE61 5LD

Join me, Si Rowland in beautiful Cresswell Village under the dark skies of Northumberland for the event of the year – The Geminid Meteor Shower! This prolific shower delivers up to 150 meteors per hour and against the dark December skies, they are really bright. It will be new Moon too this year so the display should be really good.

As well as watching for shooting stars, Jupiter will be high in the sky and the majestic constellation Orion will be there with its famous nebula which we’ll be able to see through my telescopes. I will also have an actual shooting star to show you all!

Please note that this has already taken place on 14/12/2023

Event darkness

The Moon has a big impact on the visibility of celestial bodies in the night sky. Try to plan your stargazing when there is no bright Moon at night as this is when the skies will be at their darkest.

The below chart shows if and when the skies will be at their darkest during this event. Moonlight is shown in light yellow and the Sun's twilight in light blue. Midnight on the date shown is shown as a white line with sunset to the left and sunrise the next morning to the right. A black background with stars shows the best times for stargazing.
