Perseids Meteor Watch at Blackwater Falls
Naturalist Paulita Cousin will be conducting a Perseid Meteor Watch party at the Blackwater Falls Nature Center, starting at 9 p.m. Made of tiny space debris from the comet Swift-Tuttle, the Perseids are named after the constellation Perseus. A New Moon creates dark skies and excellent conditions to see the shooting stars. Bring a lawn chair or a blanket and enjoy the show.
The star dome from NASA’s Independent Verification and Validation (IV&V) Facility, home of NASA’s IV&V Program will be a featured activity the week of August 10-16. An interpretative schedule will be available at the nature center or Blackwater Falls Lodge front desk.
