The Eta Aquarid meteor shower peaks this morning and, if we’re lucky and the sky is clear, our evening stargazing will treat us to a dynamic display! Come for the evening or stay overnight to learn about constellations, planets, the Milky Way, satellites and more! Weather-permitting, a brief indoor presentation will be followed by story-telling around a bonfire as we discover the legends behind the constellations, accompanied by a guided tour of the night sky using telescope and laser pointer. And how many meteors will you count? Bring your binoculars!
Meet at 7:30 pm in the Pavilion for this free event, or book your family/group into a cabin (special rate $60/cabin) and stay overnight. Drop-ins are welcome, but overnight guests must book accommodation in advance. This event will run rain or shine… let’s hope for the latter so that we can see the double shadow on Jupiter from two of its four moons!
