The 22nd to 23rd April marks the peak of the annual Lyrid meteor shower. During this event you will learn why we have meteor showers, what gives them their names and most importantly how you can observe them yourself. You may even catch a glimpse of one in the dark skies above. This event is likely to be incredibly popular and early booking is advised.
