Primrose Hill - London
Prince Albert Road, London, London, NW1 4RY
The Baker Street Irregular Astronomers will meet on Thursday 11 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 photo) to view the Perseid meteor ‘shower’ until the early hours of Friday.
Twilight does not fall until just before 11 pm, lasting until 3 am, so we should have a few hours to bag Perseids!
A bright moon will be prominent and bright, and Saturn, rising at 8.40 pm, will be close to the Moon very low down in the south-east and Jupiter will rise at 10 pm, so please bring a small telescope for observing if you have one.
Everyone is welcome to join the group for this session. If you would like to attend please contact Eric to confirm your attendance.
Please note that this has already taken place on 11/08/2022
