Swamper’s Guide to the Galaxy – Draconids Meteor Shower

October 7, 2023 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm

See the Draconids Meteor Shower!

Weather permitting, this event will meet in the main parking lot across from the Trading Post. We will talk briefly about light pollution, and then explore visible constellations and dark sky objects through the telescope. The Draconids Meteor Shower peaks this weekend, October 7-8. Moonrise isn’t until 12:30 am so we should see plenty of shooting stars early this evening.

Please bring red headlamps instead of white. Call park to let us know you plan on attending.
