Join Geneva Lake Astrophysics and STEAM (GLAS) Education from 8:30-10:30PM on Wednesday, August 12th for a free event celebrating the Perseid Meteor Shower! If the skies are cloudy, the event will be moved to the evening of the 13th. This event will be held at White River County Park (6503 Sheridan Springs Rd, Lake Geneva, WI).
Enjoy views of celestial objects through portable telescopes, a cozy bonfire, astronomy-themed activities, and a party of “falling stars!” Every year in August, debris from Comet Swift-Tuttle plunges into Earth's atmosphere, causing a beautiful display of meteors, or "falling stars," known as the Perseid Meteor Shower.
ASL interpretation will be available for the deaf and hard of hearing. In light of the COVID-19 situation, all staff and volunteers will be equipped with proper masks/face shields, and sanitation/social distancing procedures will be practiced to ensure safety for everyone.
Children must be accompanied by adults at all times. No pets, please. Masks are recommended for attendees. Since meteors are usually best viewed while lying down, you may want to bring a blanket or reclining lawn chair.
