Come with us to join an amazing evening walk to a beautiful spot where we will have a perfect view of the night sky in august. It will be spectacular for several reasons, we will see the summer triangle, we have a look at Saturn, Mars and probably Jupiter showing us the ecliptic circle, the milky way will be clear to see and there are Perseids that result in a meteor shower.
Toby will lead you to the perfect spot where we can lie on our backs to look straight up and have a 360 degrees view of the sky. During the walk we will have adjusted our eyes to the dark so we can see everything clearly when our ‘star lady’ is explaining everything to us.
The Perseids meteor shower shows up every year in August, when the sky is clear we hope to see many each hour and this year the moon will be bright so also great for seeing all the craters.
Please bring something to lie on and some drinks & snacks to enjoy while watching the meteor shower!
Please bring a torch, as we’ll be walking back in the dark.
DATE & TIME:
Monday 12th August 2019 – 22.00h

DONATION: The walks are by donation of 10€ per person. It’s important for us that the walks are accessible to all and if you are on a very tight budget then we also accept exchanges like some nice chocolate, something home made or a hug!
DOGS: If you have a lovely well trained dog which is also socialized please bring them along. They will need to be on a lead on the roads & some of the beaches .
INSURANCE: We have liability insurance, but do not have medical insurance – this is your responsibility.
GUIDES: All our guides are trained and have the ability to lead groups, they all carry a first aid kit and use walkie talkies to keep in contact with a back marker to make sure the group stays together and are safe. We also have strict departure and return procedure to ensure everyone is accounted for.
The trip and your safety is your responsibility and you must ensure you are covered for this prior to coming on the walk.
