  1. 12th August 2024

Welcome stargazers! Join us at the Field of Hope, Tomintoul as we celebrate the return of darker skies with the Perseid Meteor Shower on Monday, Aug 12, 2024 at 22:30. Bring your blankets, nibbles, warm flasks, and friends for a night of wonder under the stars with our local astronomer Sam. If the weather is unsuitable outdoors on the night a presentation will be given at the Discovery Centre indoors in Tomintoul where you’ll also be able to explore the Dark Skies exhibition.

We will be meeting at the Discovery Centre in Tomintoul from 10pm onwards. We will then walk in a group with red head torches down to the Dark Sky Discovery site and bird hide. Parking is available in the square.

Participants will be contacted prior to the event with an update on weather and conditions.
