Join Ranger Joel for a night of astronomy focused on the Perseid meteor shower.

Come out and enjoy an evening of astronomy related activities.  Ranger Joel will tell stories about any visible constellations, and then set up his telescope for views of any visible planets, galaxies, or nebula.  This event will be on held during the peak of the Perseid meteor shower so the first hour will be dedicated to the telescope while the second hour will be reserved for families and friends to enjoy the meteor shower while Ranger Joel shares facts about meteors.

Bring a comfortable chair or blanket to relax on and some bug spray.  The star party will last for about two hours and begins at 9:00pm on the peninsula out past the activity center.  Please do not use flashlights on the walk out to the event as this will damage our night vision.  No reservations are necessary so come on out and join us!
