OM Dark Sky Park and Observatory
Davagh Forest, Cookstown, County Tyrone, BT79 8JH
Join the team at OM for a meteor shower viewing session on Saturday, 19 November, when the Leonids will be at their peak.
This prolific meteor shower is associated with comet Tempel-Tuttle, and while rates can be around 15 per hour, it’s not uncommon to see more. T
This session will be held at the OM viewing platform behind the main building, so refreshments and toilet facilities will be available throughout, with no walking required. Come prepared for outdoor viewing – wrap up warm!
