Geminid Meteor Shower

5:00 p.m.–2:00 a.m. (weather permitting)

Public: $7 per person

Come enjoy watching the Geminid Meteor Shower.  The Moon will be favorable this year and not rise till after midnight.  We should get to see the peak of the shower from 9:00pm till midnight.  Dress warm and bring lawn chairs to see if we can spot any meteors.  Telescopes will also be open at dark.  Remember, clouds make it impossible to see meteors, so hope for good weather!
