Orionids Meteor Shower

Join us Friday, October 21st, 2016 at 8pm at Three Peaks Recreational Area to see the Orionids Meteor Shower. The Orionids come from the remaining stream of Halley’s Comet and will peak this year on October 21st. Join us that Friday!

We will also look through a large telescope. We will be able to see the Hercules Great Cluster, the Ring Nebula, a myriad of globular clusters, and the Andromeda Galaxy!

Make sure to dress warm as the temperature may drop as low as 48 degrees that Saturday.

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.
