Description

The team at Wynyard Observatory are holding a Meteor watch for the Perseid Metor Shower from 8pm till late on Monday 12th August. This is a free event and all are welcome, but it is dependant on the weather. Please remember to wrap up warm -- they plan to have their all-sky camera running and the sky projected onto the observatory dome for those who might want to sit inside!
