Some interesting information~


There is likely to be a meteor storm, hundreds of shooting stars visible in the early hours of November 22nd.

If you look SW at 04:30 for perhaps 1 hour it is likely to see over 200 meteors in that time.

It is not an exact prediction though and it may come to a few only, we cannot be certain.

There is a bright star near to the source of the meteors, it is Sirius, the brightest star in the night sky.

I am planning to take a look and note what I view.




Astronomy is the study of celestial objects (such as stars, planets, comets, and galaxies) and phenomena that originate outside the Earth's atmosphere.

We will start with the basics - even just using our eyes to identify the planets and basic constellations, before moving on to the deeper stuff.

No equipment is necessary, though even a pair of binoculars will allow you to see new things!
