Join us for a celebration of the night sky as we reach the peak of the Perseid Meteor showers.
We are hosting a live in-person outdoor Star Party at the Space Centre, along with a YouTube live stream, so anyone can take part from anywhere!
This boutique experience will be a one-hour long circuit that includes a tour of the observatory, along with outdoor talks about viewing the night sky. Our staff will be under the stars sharing their knowledge of the Perseid Meteor showers, light pollution and more!
This event is recommended for ages 12 and older. Come rain or shine and wear appropriate outdoor attire.
You just need to select a time slot and purchase tickets for your group (max. 4 people)
