- The Stargazing Event is on the same date as the peak of the Orionids Meteor Shower. The rate of meteors for the Orionids is around 15 meteors per hour so the chance of seeing any meteor is very low so we decided to make the event a stargazing party rather than a meteor shower.
- No alcohol is allowed! This is a family-friendly event.
- The meteors will not be visible through the telescopes. Only celestial observation will be done through the telescopes.
