Join astronomers from Go Stargazing for a magical shooting star experience at Little Seed Field!

The Geminids meteor shower is most active each year on the 13th, 14th and 15th of December; on these dates, the Earth passes through the densest part of a vast cosmic cloud of dust left over from asteroid 3200 Phaethon. The result is dozens of shooting stars can be seen, and Little Seed Field is a wonderful location from where to spot them.

The event includes a short talk about the Geminids, an introduction to astrophotography helping you to capture photos of them, an astronomer-led tour of the night skies, stargazing with telescopes and light nibbles and drinks throughout the evening.

Tickets cost £30 for adults and £15 for children (under 18).

Why not stay over and take advantage of some fantastic accommodation in a luxury cabin during the peak of the Geminid shower? Packages are available, including ensuite accommodation costing £200 and standard £170 for two nights!

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.
