Perseid Meteor Shower Viewing

When is this event?


The Perseid meteor shower is one of the most dramatic things to see in the night sky between July and August. In 2023 the Perseid meteor shower is active between 17 July and 24 August. Join members of the Cairngorms Astronomy Club and TGDT at the Field of Hope and at the Tomintoul Bird Hide to experience this special celestial phenomena.
The meteors are called the Perseids because they appear to originate in the constellation Perseus.
If the skies aren’t clear on Friday the 18th of August, another chance to view them will be offered at the same time on Saturday the 19th of August.


Where is this event being held?

The Field of Hope car park is placed in a very accessible location just outside Tomintoul with excellent all round views of the sky. Parking is also available nearby in Tomintoul.
