About this event

Alright, 3rd time's a charm. This time the Delta Aquariid meteor shower will be at its peak and Saturn will also be visible, so a lot to look forward to in that regard!

Alternatively, you can meet us at Hornsby Platform 2 at 17:45 if you wish to join us on the train (please let us know in advance) or drive to Mount Kuring-Gai Oval to meet us at 18:15. Please arrive on-time or early! Train does not wait for you, or you will be left behind!!!
