Perseid Meteor Shower

This annual meteor shower is supposed to be more spectacular than ever!

According to NASA meteor expert Bill Cooke, the Perseids are perhaps the most popular meteor shower of the year. The meteor shower's peak will be visible both the nights of Aug. 11-12 and Aug. 12-13, Cooke said, but he's inclined this year to lean toward the night of Aug. 12-13 for the better show. (Both, however, should be spectacular.) https://www.space.com/32868-perseid-meteor-shower-guide.html

Viewing at 9:30 p.m. should be one of the more active periods of the evening with 50-100 showers an hour, but the most showers occur just before dawn.  The observatory is open until 6am for those of you interested in an all-night viewing. The crescent moon will enhance our viewing abilities keeping the skies dark!

$7 State Park entrance fee per person.  Additional fee at the observatory if you want to use the telescopes.

Please arrive on time to allow your eyes to adjust for the dark skies. The park has many hiking trails if you want to arrive an hour or so early for a quick hike!
