See the Geminids at Cassiobury Park

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

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.

The Geminid meteor shower happens every year in winter and can be pretty spectacular. The peak display is between the 14th & 15th of December; there could be around 100 an hour.

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

Please note that this has already taken place on 14/12/2023

Event darkness

The Moon has a big impact on the visibility of celestial bodies in the night sky. Try to plan your stargazing when there is no bright Moon at night as this is when the skies will be at their darkest.

The below chart shows if and when the skies will be at their darkest during this event. Moonlight is shown in light yellow and the Sun's twilight in light blue. Midnight on the date shown is shown as a white line with sunset to the left and sunrise the next morning to the right. A black background with stars shows the best times for stargazing.
