The greatest astronomy show on Earth will return to London on 6th & 7th February 2015. Brought to you by the makers of 'Astronomy Now' one of the UK's leading astrophotography magazines, European AstroFest is the world's premier space conference and exhibition bringing together the professional and amateur communities, AstroFest 2015 already seems to be lining up to be the biggest and best event yet.

AstroFest's team are promising to be working on a stellar line-up of personalities to address the conference. During the course of the two-day event, speakers from around the world will talk on some of the most exciting topics in astronomy.

If you are looking for a new telescope, a better eyepiece, a state-of-the-art CCD camera, a good astronomy book, or are thinking of taking up astronomy at university, European AstroFest 2015 is the place to be.

Exhibition tickets for AstroFest will be available on the door priced at £8. Pick up a copy of the February issue of Astronomy Now to get £2 off adult admission to the exhibition. Conference tickets for Saturday are now sold out and a few tickets remain for Friday's conference. Exhibition tickets are available for both days.

Quadrantids Meteor Shower

3rd/Jan
06 January 2015
  0 COMMENTS

The Quadrantids is an above average shower, with up to 40 meteors per hour at its peak. It is thought to be produced by dust grains left behind by an extinct comet known as 2003 EH1, which was discovered in 2003. The shower runs annually from January 1-5. It peaks this year on the night of the 3rd and morning of the 4th. Unfortunately the nearly full moon will block out all but the brightest meteors this year. Best viewing will be from a dark location after midnight. Meteors will radiate from the constellation Bootes, but can appear anywhere in the sky.
