PERSEIDS METEOR SHOWER EVENT
August 12 @ 8:00 pm - August 13 @ 12:00 am
“On Saturday, August 12 from 8pm to midnight come on out and explore the Perseids meteor shower and other mysteries of the night sky at the Mountain Spruce Community Park at 6335 Mahood Lake Road just by the turnoff to Deka Lake. On average, you can expect to see up to 100 meteors per hour during the Perseid’s peak. We are lucky this year because there will be very little of the moon showing to light up the sky, so the stars will be more visible. Chat with space enthusiasts whose telescopes will be aimed at the skies. Continue your space odyssey with a unique walk on lantern-lit trails. Bring a blanket or lounge chair and lay back and watch “shooting stars” and learn how to find constellations. Steve Coleopy from the South Cariboo Astronomy Club will be giving a star talk and will have his telescope there to see a celestial object other than the meteors! We will have a concession stand set up at the picnic shelter from 8pm-midnight with hot and cold drinks, chips and snacks available to purchase. There will be fire pits and marshmallows to roast. This is an all ages event and admission is free!!
Get ready to be wowed by the night sky and enjoy this fun community event
