Night Sky Tour: Perseid Meteor Shower

Experience the splendor of the night sky, highlighting the Perseid Meteor Shower.  This meteor shower will be peaking this weekend! During this program we will discuss the meteor shower and observe 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.

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 Viewing Area. Follow the walkway from the public program parking to the seating area.

The park asks that visitors to the Night Sky programs to please leave their pets at home. Dim lighting, large crowds and sensitive equipment do not create a pet-friendly environment.

If the sky is unfavorable for stargazing, an alternative program may be held.

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.

Very good. Unfortunately the sky was totally obscured by clouds (they were crystal clear the night before and the night after) but the rangers were still really helpful. They told us about the astronomical events and answered all our questions. On other nights, when we didn't have a tour reserved, they were just as helpful.

Unfortunately, the weather was uncooperative and the clouds got in the way of a good show. Excited to go back on a clearer evening.
