Swamper's Guide to the Galaxy- Perseids Meteor Shower!

Saturday, Aug 13, 2022 (8:45 PM to 9:45 PM)

Weather permitting, we will meet in the main parking lot across from the Trading Post. We will talk briefly about light pollution then explore visible constellations and dark sky objects through the telescope. The Perseids Meteor Shower peaks this weekend. The full moon rises tonight at 9:45 pm, before then we should see shooting stars!

Please bring red headlamps instead of white. Call park to let us know you plan on attending. Moonrise Calendar: https://www.timeanddate.com/moon/@4213974 Weather: https://forecast.weather.gov/MapClick.php?lat=30.8919&lon=-82.3963#.Yg-e_DHMIpt
