See the Perseids from the famous observatories at Herstmonceux! As Earth passes through the debris trail left behind by comet Swift-Tuttle, particles of space dust enter the atmosphere leaving a trail of light behind, a shooting star. Join the team from Observatory Science Centre for an informative talk to learn more about this fascinating yearly event. If the weather is good, you will also have the opportunity to view through the historic telescopes. Prior booking required.
