Event Series Event Series: How Meteor Showers Work

How Meteor Showers Work

August 11, 2023 at 7:30 pm - 8:00 pm


Join us for a short, fun, interactive activity that helps explain where the Perseid meteor showers come from.  This game provides an intro to this weekend’s Perseid Meteor Shower, and is a great way to ease into the following Night Sky Tour program.

All ages – kids, teens, and adults.

Registration is not required for this fun, family-friendly, and free event.


While you may still observe on your own at the park without attending a program, all visitors should arrive before dark.

Park programs occur on the Night Sky Public Viewing Area. Park in the gravel lot and follow the walkway next to the restrooms to the seating area. Since seating is limited, you may want to bring a chair and/or blanket.

We ask that park visitors please leave their pets at home. Dim lighting, large crowds and sensitive equipment do not create a pet-friendly environment.

All programs will be cancelled in the event of rain or thunder.

Check the Clear Sky Chart or Astrospheric for 48-hour forecasts of cloud cover and viewing conditions.
