There will also be powerful telescopes for you to gaze through,but we will also help you to see the spectacle of the meteor shower with just your own eyes.

Did you know; from towns and cities we see just a handful of stars, but in Grizedale Forest we could count 2,000 at any one time!

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.
