Event Location



The Quadrantids is the first major meteor shower of the year. It is usually active between the end of December and the second week of January, and peaks around January 3 or January 4. Unlike other meteor showers that tend to stay at their peak for about two days, the peak period of the Quadrantis is only for a few hours. The shower owes its name to the now defunct constellation Quadrans Muralis. The constellation was left off a list of constellations drawn out by the International Astronomical Union (IAU) in 1922, but because the shower had already been named after Quadrans Muralis, it's name was not changed. The Quandrantids is also called the Bootids after the modern constellation, Boötes The Quadrantids are associated with an asteroid - the 2003 EH1. The asteroid takes about 5.5 years to orbit around the Sun. This event will start at 8pm and may run later than the advertised end time so that we can get the full potential of the show!

 

Please note: A hot drink will be served at some point during the event and is included in the ticket price.
