Astronomy Watch

These events are FREE! Bring your blankets/sleeping bags/coats/gloves/thermos and loved ones out to Covered Bridge Park and enjoy nature’s brilliant show! The Meteors can be viewed with the naked eye, but if you would like to set up equipment you are more than welcome to do so. Hot cocoa refills will be available for the first hour of the watch! These showers average out at 200 meteors per hour and will only be viewed on a clear night, so get excited for this majestic wonder of an event created for us by none other than Mother Nature herself!

Extra lights like flashlights/cellphones/headlights/etc. are to be left at home for this event (your eyes need to be able to adjust in order to see the meteors and the light may inhibit your view and the view of others around you), Thanks!
