Bright lights come to Dark Skies

Perseids meteor shower is set to give a great show on Thursday 12th August night/Friday 13th morning .

Up to 60 meteors could be seen if the skies are clear. Look to the north east as this is where the meteors will be starting from, and stay well away from any street lights to get the best views.

Glentrool and Clatteringshaws are both good areas to observe from so long as you have good views north.

We'll hopefully get decent weather and be able to take some pictures which we'll pop on here.

Happy viewing!
