The Sill National Landscape Discovery Centre
Bardon Mill, Hexham, NE47 7AN, North East
Discover the magic of the Geminids Meteor Shower, which takes place later tonight (weather permitting) and find out where comets come from. If clouds prevent us from viewing the starlit sky, we will use the radio-telescope instead to detect meteors whizzing through the ionosphere at thousands of miles per hour!
