Perseid Meteor Showers

Join us Friday, August 12, 2016 at 8pm at Three Peaks Recreational Area to see the Perseid Meteor Showers and look through a large telescope.

Earth will collide with even more material from Comet Swift-Tuttle this years making the viewing even more spectacular than usual.

This event is free and open to the public. Everyone is invited and it is free of charge. However, donations help us buy better equipment for the community, and are always deeply appreciated.

We recommend coming right at 8 pm, wrapping up for warmth, and bringing a blanket or chair for additional warmth and comfort. We’ll provide the telescopes.

Directions to Three Peaks from Cedar City can be found here.

Disclaimer: We stay until everyone leaves, however in the event of inclement weather, we will be there at start time (in this case 8 pm), but if we are rained/snowed out and no one shows up, we typically only wait one hour from start time to call it quits.
