Grizedale Forest Visitor Centre, Grizedale, LA22 0QJ
We will be your guide taking you along an incredible journey through the constellations and along the Milky Way, while showing you how to find all sorts of heavenly objects for yourself. 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!
Please book early – places are limited.
The event is held at Grizedale visitor centre, meeting in “The Yan” before going outside to see the stars.
