Primrose Hill - London
Prince Albert Road, London, London, NW1 4RY
The Baker Street Irregular Astronomers are hosting an informal observing session at Primrose Hill to spot Perseids Meteors. Irregulars so enjoyed their time that they have decided to have a meeting spotting meteor trails again this year.
Irregulars will meet on Thursday, 10 August, at 9 pm at the gate on Prince Albert Road, next to Ormonde Terrace, before walking to the Irregulars field (marked with the red pin in the image) to view the Perseid meteor ‘shower’ until the early hours of Friday.
In addition, planets will be on show: Saturn, rising at 21:09, will be visible all evening, Neptune will be to its left, only observable through a small telescope, and Jupiter will be rising at 23:11, so please bring your small telescopes and binoculars for planetary observing.
Remember to bring a ground covering to sit and lie upon, a red light touch (if you have one) and adequate refreshments (liquid and snacks) to sustain yourself. There is no cafe, shelter or hard standing in the field where we will congregate.
Please note that this has already taken place on 10/08/2023
