Meteor Nights in Yeruham

Hi there,


I'm happy to share with you a number of celestial events. In all the events visitors will be able to view the craters of the moon, Saturn and its magnificent rings, Jupiter and its moons, star clusters, galaxies, nebulae and double stars.


In addition, visitors will enjoy guided observations in which they will locate the North Star and learn about its importance, get to know the constellations and the zodiac, hear stellar stories, history, science and mythology. And let's not forget the story between a meteor and a meteor that crossed the sky on "Swift-Tuttle" - the comet responsible for the Perseids phenomenon - the most beautiful meteor shower of the year.
