Gear up for this amazing stargazing night as we view this winter’s meteor shower! Cozy up under the stars to capture one of this season’s spectacular outer galactic shows! We will view the different stars, constellations and tell stories of astronomy folklore as we watch for meteors to flash across the night sky. You will have the opportunity to make an out-of-this-world craft to take home. Please dress in many warm layers as the evening is quite chilly in the canyon. Also, you are welcome to bring your own blankets and chairs to sit and enjoy the show.
