Join park staff for a Moon & Meteor Watch! The Perseid Meteor Shower will be peaking this weekend, however the 1st quarter moon will negatively impact viewing. The bright moon will wash out many of the meteors and stars. Bright meteors should still be visible and we will discuss the meteor shower, the moon, and observe constellations through a laser guided tour led by park staff.
Following the program, the park will have telescopes available for an up close look at celestial objects. Telescope availability is subject to time and crowd-size limitations.
Pre-registration is required to attend this Program and spaces are limited. Registration will open 45 days prior to each event!
While you may still observe on your own at the park without attending a program, all visitors should arrive before dark.
Programs are conducted at the Night Sky Public Viewing Area. Follow the walkway from the public program parking to the seating area.
The park asks that visitors to the Night Sky programs 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.
Visitors may want to check the Clear Sky Chart for 48-hour forecasts of cloud cover and viewing conditions.
