Come enjoy what humans have been doing for the last 200,000 years! Celebrate the night sky as Earth makes its annual pass through the debris of comet Swift-Tuttle. We are going to have a moonrise dance party, cook over a constellation campfire, explore the nocturnal world, and stargaze late into the night. Bring your own telescope or binoculars and get one-on-one instruction from a professional astronomer, or just set up a picnic blanket and look up!


In the event of bad weather, we will try viewing the meteor shower on Friday, August 15th. If poor viewing conditions persist, we will host stargazing at Northerly Island at a later date (Saturday, October 18th).
