Orionid Meteor Shower Watch Party!

Oct 20
1:00am to 2:30am

Join the Roving Naturalist for a late night meteor shower watch party! Every October, the earth passes through a debris field produced by Halley's Comet; causing the Orionid Meteor Shower. As crazy as it seems, 1:00am is the best time to get outside and see the highest volume of meteors. Any earlier in the night, and there is not a whole lot of activity. So, get a good night's rest the night before, bring warm clothes and blankets, and learn more about this incredible galactic phenomenon that is a whole lot closer to earth than you may think!

A telescope will be set up and shared to observe planets and stars, cleaned before each family's use. Have a camera and tripod? Bring it along and get some tips on how to capture the meteors! $6, ages 5+
