The most abundant meteor shower associated with Hailey's Comet, the Orionids' radiant lies in the constellation of Orion. Streams can occur at rates of up to 70 per hour
Most meteors which fall towards Earth ablate before reaching its surface but we can observe them by reflecting radio waves from their ionised trails.
Our meteor telescope utilises sensitive antennae an state of the art receivers to display live meteor data in real-time providing an exciting and informative experience for anyone interested in science & technology.

Operations Centre moves into Cold War era bunker
Exciting news - we've finally moved in to our new building on the historic RAF Alconbury airfield. The developer has kindly donated a decomissioned bomb depot control building, a remnant of the cold war. The folks at JJM have been working hard over the last few weeks to renovate it and power it up, and at last our server farm and Space Operations Centre equipment are now in place! Thanks to all those who helped with the move!
