Perseids Meteor Shower Watch

Enjoy an evening under the dark star-filled sky, learn about meteor showers, and follow our star guide on a tour of the night sky as you watch and wait for meteors. The best meteor activity is usually after midnight and well after the program ends. You can stay as long as you want, but regardless, dress warm, in layers and bring chairs or blankets for the best experience.

Pre-registration is required to attend Night Sky Programs

Visitors to the Night Sky programs should plan on arriving before darkness falls.

Programs are conducted at the Night Sky viewing Area. Follow the red lit walkway from the public program parking section 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.

Visitors may want to check the Clear Sky Chart for Cherry Springs web site for current cloud cover and viewing conditions.
