The Perseid meteor shower, one of the year’s best. The near-full moon will interfere with the view of fainter meteors, but brighter ones should still put on a show (we hope!) Also, great views of Jupiter and Saturn, and maybe a look at Venus. Bring a lawn chair or blanket to lie and watch for meteors while you’re not looking through a scope. Back-up date August 13th. Program for all ages. $6 for members; $9 for public.
NOTE: The weather is not looking great for tonight’s meteor shower, so the Star Party will be tomorrow evening, August 13th from 9-11pm. You can still pre-register until 12pm Tuesday. Walk-ins are welcome and can pay with cash at the event. We will notify pre-registrants of any further changes, and you can check back here for updates.
