Night Sky Tour – Perseid Meteor Shower
August 11 at 9:00 pm - 9:45 pmFREE
The Perseid Meteor Shower peaks this weekend! While the best meteor viewing will occur after midnight, come explore the night sky with us.
In this program, explore constellations through a laser guided tour led by park staff. Listen as we recount the legends and myths surrounding these mysterious patterns in the sky.
Registration encouraged, but not required. Should we need to cancel or modify a program due to weather, etc., we will email all registered participants. Optional registration will open 45 days before the program.
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.
