Perseid Meteor Shower

August 11, 2018 @ 9:00 pm - August 12, 2018 @ 5:30 am

If you see just one astronomical event this summer, it
has got to be the Perseid Meteor Shower. On the night of
Sunday, August 12, and early Monday morning, the planet
Earth will plow through debris from a comet. The night
sky will come alive with shooting stars. All you need to
view the Perseid Meteor Shower is to go outside and look
to the northeast starting at about 9 p.m. till dawn. The experts
say it should be spectacular. The Kern River Valley
Astronomy Club will host its Saturday night Star Party at
dusk on August 11 at the Fairview Observing site located
12 miles north of Kernville. A sign and orange cones will
mark the entrance. There will be lots of meteor action that
night, also. See you there. For more information, call Rich
Burdge at (760) 376-6290.
