I’ll be at this Shropshire campsite for the Perseid meteor shower on Friday 11th, Saturday 12th and Sunday 13th.
The peak nights for the shower are 12th and 13th. I’ve been trying to spread the word at the Wolverhampton Astronomical Society, and Walsall too. I’m hoping to get some other people along, it’s a nice friendly campsite with electric hook-ups and as dark a sky as you can get an hour’s drive from the Black Country.
I’ve put some pictures of the campsite below.
If anyone has any questions, I’m on 07933144417 or firstname.lastname@example.org
My caravan at the campsite. You can’t miss it! I hope this is the sort of sky we’ll get on the weekend! Glorious!
I took this picture a few months ago. The red glow is due to the 20 second exposure, it’s the streetlights of Craven Arms, five miles away, un-noticeable with the naked eye.
A small provisions shop half a mile down the road.
The sign for the campsite. I’ll be in the furthest field, which is several hundred meters from the road.
My Skywatcher in the field I’m using.
Nice pub (real ale, good food) half a mile away. Just in case it’s cloudy!
