Party with the Perseids

Party with The Perseids begins at 8:00 p.m. on Wednesday, August 12, 2020. It starts with a program “Light Pollution and Solution-YOU!” presentation in Blackwater Falls Nature Center with naturalist Paulita Cousin, and then ventures outside for the night sky show!

Sit back and relax in your lawn chair or blanket (not provided) for an evening of meteors and stars from 9:30 p.m. to 2:00 a.m. Because it is an outdoor meteor watching activity, if raining or overcast the show won’t go on.

Please, help keep the area dark for viewing by refraining from adding white/blue light from flashlights and cell phones. We’ll talk about developing night vision as we move outdoors. Use red light on flashlights, use night mode on devices and limit bright headlights in the area. We’ll have some red cellophane on hand for your flashlight, if needed.

If the night is clear, watching meteors during the Perseid meteor shower at one of WV darkest places, Blackwater Falls is awesome.
