Star Watch: Perseid Meteor Shower

Free Public Star (and meteor!) Watch – Sat, August 12 (Rain date, Wed August 16)

Join us for the Perseids Meteor Shower and star watch at the Tohickon Boat Launch parking lot in Nockamixon State Park ( Tohickon Boat Launch – Google Maps ). The yearly Perseid Meteor Shower peaks this night so bring a chair or blanket to lean back and enjoy the show. No fancy equipment needed!

The astronomers from Bucks-Mont Astronomical Association will also have telescopes available to look through and will be on hand to answer questions.  Dress warmly, wear bug spray, and bring binoculars or your own telescopes if you have them.  We ask that you leave your pets at home for the safety and comfort of other participants and to prevent potential damage to delicate equipment.  Thanks, and hope to see you there!

(Please check this website for updates in case the weather leads to postponement. Postponements, if any, will be communicated here by 5:00 PM on the day of the event.)
