The Perseids is one of the best meteor showers to observe, producing up to 60 meteors per hour at its peak. The shower runs annually from July 17 to August 24. It peaks this year on the night of August 12 and the morning of August 13. Join us in our indoor planetarium to learn how to spot the most meteors from this shower. Each 20-minute program will be limited to individual family groups. Participants are required to sit on the floor. Ask about accommodations. Please wait at the picnic tables at the Discovery Center until you are let inside for your time slot.
