Canceled – Perseids Meteor Shower Watch

Aug. 8, 2020, 9 p.m.

Add to Outlook calendar

Join us for dark skies on a high hill for great views of the heavens as we watch for large numbers of meteors as they appear from the constellation Perseus. During some viewings, 50 – 60 meteors can be seen per hour, although this can be greatly influenced by atmospheric conditions. Bring a blanket or chair and join us as we watch the skies. A short walk up a hill is required to reach the viewing area and this program is weather dependent.
