Come watch the sky with me

Starry night

The starry night – Vincent van Gogh, 1889

Orionids is the name of  a celestial body, whose orbit intersects twice earth’s one: this is why Orionidi are observable in the Autumn and Aquaridi in Spring. Meteors are typically faint light, mixed with occasional fireballs. In 2009, the radiant of the Orionids, observable after midnight, will be at the higher altitude (about 65 °) at dawn.

The night between 21 and 22 October this year will be very favorable for both complete absence of moonlight and the highest number of meteors at night.

Two good reasons to come to Bellerive in Autumn if you take advantage of our last minute offer.
