Perseids Meteor Shower : Hike and View in Black Star

Perseids Meteor Shower : Hike and View in Black Star

Gear up for this amazing star gazing night as we take in this summer’s meteor shower! Our evening will begin with a warm up hike on a flat stretch of trail near the Red Rocks in Black Star. We will return to the staging area to stretch out under the stars to capture one of this season’s spectacular outer galactic shows! We will view the different stars and constellations and tell stories of astronomy folklore as we watch for meteors crossing the night sky. You are welcome to carry portable chairs or a soft blanket to lay out while you view the meteor shower event.
