While the current state of emergency continues, all large gatherings and events are off. Any future dates listed on this site, therefore, are subject to cancellation or change and we will update, where we can, when any new information is made available. In the meantime, we reckon wherever you are, you might appreciate some distraction from the situation and, to that end, we'll continue to post pretty pictures and videos.

Rain of Shooting Stars

The Canarian Astrophysics Institute (IAC) announced yesterday that the best days to see the Perseid meteor shower, associated with the comet Swift-Tuttle, are the nights of August 11th and 12th.

Although the maximum activity will occur at 18:29 hours (Universal Time) on Aug 12, the best time to view the Perseids, on both days, is in the early hours of the morning, once the moon has set.

The Perseids can be seen with naked eye, provided you don't have too much light interference nearby. If you live in the countryside (or even better, under clear Canary Island skies), you should be able to see the rain of stars perfectly from your own house.

La máxima actividad de las "Perseidas" se producirá el 12 de agosto

All events are liable to change beyond our control.
