CANCELLED Meteor Shower Viewing at Grills Preserve
August 12, 2018 @ 8:30 pm - 10:30 pm
Join The Westerly Land Trust at Grills Preserve to watch the Perseid Meteor Shower! We will go on an approximately 1-mile walk through the trails until we arrive at “Big Hill” within the preserve. This is an open, dark and quiet area perfect for stargazing. This year, we should see approximately 60-70 meteors per hour.
The Perseid Meteor Shower is one of the brighter meteor showers that happen every year. The 2018 Perseid’s shower is going to peak on this night and there will be a New Moon, providing optimal viewing conditions.
Please note: Bring a blanket, bug spray, flashlight/headlamp, and dress warmly.
Registration is not necessary, but please call walk leader Donna (203-470-4566) if you are running late so she knows to wait for you. If the weather is questionable, please call Donna for cancellation notification.
No fee for this event.
Directions: Park in the parking lot at the end of Bowling Ln, which is off N Main St in Bradford (Westerly).
