Due to poor weather conditions this event will not go ahead. Please keep an eye on our website and social media over the coming months for details on our annual stargazing event in November.
The Perseid Meteor Shower is one of the brigther meteor showers of the year and will be peaking the 12th/13th August. For this we will open our doors to provide a warm and safe place to view this amazing sight while the staff from the planetarium at Glasgow Science Centre provide information on where you should be looking, what you should look out for, and general stargazing tips.
The centre will be open for cafe and toilet use. Please bring a red lensed torch (if you have one), a deck chair, binoculars and warm reflective clothing.
Please note the car park closest to the visitor centre will be closed to cars, this will allow for people to set up deck chairs/tripods safely and be able to walk safely into the visitor centre as the lights in the car park will be off.
There are no tickets for this event, please just turn up on the night. Our other regular annual Stargazing events will remain ticketed to manage the numbers.
The team from the Glasgow Science Centre Planetarium will be on site from 10pm 12th until 1am 13th August to answer any questions you may have. The building will remain open after this time but only for the cafe and toliets.
Due to the timings this event is not suitable for young children.
In the event of poor weather this event may be cancelled. Please keep an eye on our social media for up to date info.
