What's up with meteor showers and why do they occur the same time each year? What's the difference between a meteor and a meteorite? Find out these answers and more. This program is a perfect start to an evening of meteor watching for the whole family.

Meteor Shower Watch
Thursday August 12, 2010 9:00-10:00pm AND

Friday August 13, 2010 9:00-10:00pm

Meteor showers continue to amaze all ages. The Perseids Meteor Shower is well-suited to families and is our most popular shower, with warmer summer temperatures and an averages of 60 meteors per hour! While there are benches, lounge chairs or blankets are usually the most comfortable for longer observing sessions. Bring binoculars to gaze upon night sky objects. This program highlights the early evening meteor watching, but for best results, you are welcome to stay later. Please dress for cooler weather to stay warm and comfortable.

Solar Viewing
Saturday August 14, 2010 7:00-7:45pm

Through our specially designed solar telescope, take a closer look at our nearest star the sun. Discover the features of our sun and how it impacts the earth.

Saturday August 14, 2010 9:00-10:30pm

Observe stars, planets, galaxies and more through several telescopes operated by volunteers and park staff. During this program we will focus on Jupiter rising and the spectacular summer Milky Way. Stars-N-Parks programs are led by Education Director, Thom Bemus, of the National Public Observatory, and Educational Outreach Partner with the Cherry Springs Dark Sky Association. It is recommended that visitors arrive about 30-minutes early to park their cars and allow their eyes to become dark-adapted.

*These programs occur on the Night Sky Viewing Area, located opposite the gated Astronomy Observing Field (north of Route 44).

*Weather can be cool and damp, please dress accordingly. For further information, please call the Lyman Run State Park office at (814) 435-5010.
