SKYWATCHING: Movie and Meteors

Enjoy a showing of “The Dish” followed by meteor watching – we have both the Perseids and the Delta Aquarids to see.

This will be our first ever movie night in Observatory Park followed by the Perseids Meteor Shower. We’ll be showing The Dish about the Apollo 11 launch and lunar landing. Bring blankets or chairs. While this isn’t the peak, there should still be plenty of shooting stars to see.

Observatory Park will be dark, but please do not bring a bright flashlight; bring a red light as it will be less intrusive to other watchers. Also adjust the brightness of electronic devices.

Limited parking for those
