Night of Shooting Stars near the Copernicus Science Centre
The nearest opportunity to admire this incredible phenomena comes on August 12th. On this occasion, the Copernicus Science Centre will turn off all illuminations of the facility, planetarium, nearby bridges, and other buildings in the vicinity. All of this is to allow you to lay down on a blanket or a lounger and gaze at as much of the sky as possible. Of course, this will take place on the green space between the Copernicus Science Centre and the Copernican Revolution Workshop.
Admission is free, and the event starts at 9:00 p.m. However, we recommend arriving a bit earlier so not to miss anything and secure the best spots.
