The Perseid meteor shower
Clear skies and few lights can provide great opportunities to observe the night sky. Join Stark Parks at Molly Stark Park as we search the sky for meteors, stars, and planets during the Perseid meteor shower. The Perseid shower builds gradually to a peak, and can produce around 50 to 100 meteors during this peak. Come discover what causes this phenomenon and see some actual meteorites. Plan to bring a blanket or chair.
