This year the Perseides Meteor Shower started on 20th July and ends on 20th August. The Meteor Shower maximum was the same day as the Full Moon in August, and with the big light of the moon it was harder to see shooting stars. Now without the moon, we will be there to observe shooting stars while our wonderful guide Etienne shares information about space, stars, planets and what exactly is a shooting star. Get your wishes ready!
Also the planets will be up: Saturn, Jupiter and Mars!
DATE & TIME: Friday 19th August – 22.30h
