This event is full.
Let's gather at Taylor Mountain to watch the night sky for the Perseid’s meteor shower. The Perseids show up every year in August when Earth ventures through the debris left behind by the Swift-Tuttle Comet. Scientists say Earth this year may be in for a closer encounter than usual with the comet trails that result in meteor showers, setting the stage for a spectacular display. The greatest number of meteors are expected August 11 to 13,2018. Join us at Taylor Mountain Regional Park & Preserve to watch the sky and talk about astrology. We'll enjoy a potluck-style social with snacks and desserts, so please bring an item to share. This family friendly event is free, but registration is required. Parking $7 or free for Regional Parks members.
