Perseid Meteor Shower at Cassiobury Park

Sunday 12th August 2018 from 21:30pm to Monday 13th August 2018 00:30am

Cassiobury Park Hub

Cassiobury Park, Watford, WD18 7LB, East of England


Description

The Perseid meteor shower happens every year and can be quite spectacular. The peak display is between the 11th - 13th August and this year there is a moonless sky and will make them easier to spot.

Bring a flask and a deck chair and watch the celestial light show. Or if you have a camera with a tripod take some photographs of the night sky.

Hopefully the weather will do its part and give us clear skies, if its cloudy then the event will be cancelled.

This is a FREE public event promoted on Facebook by Andrew Lalchan Photography.

- Event will involve stargazing and observing the skies through telescopes weather permitting


Bookings

No booking required, if the weather is clear just turn up!
