“A SHOWER OF STARDUST” Aug. 11

© 2017-Clinton Journal

CLINTON — The annual Perseid meteor shower 

Weldon Springs State Park 

Meadowview Picnic Area 

August 11 / 10 p.m.

Come and enjoy the spectacular display in the night sky as Earth travels through a stream of cosmic debris and our atmosphere incinerates tiny particles of comet Swift-Tuttle to produce 50-60 “shooting stars” per hour. 

A fire and a treat will be provided. Bring a blanket (lawn chairs will give you “astronomer’s neck”) bug spray and a sweater for comfort. No special equipment or experience is needed. 

In the event of rain, the program will be cancelled. t
