Peak of Perseids

August 12, 2017

This year, the annual Perseids meteor shower peaks on August 12th, and we’re offering you a chance to view the meteors from one of the clearest vantage points in Hendricks County: our very own McCloud Nature Park! Bring folding chairs and blankets, and join Naturalists for what will hopefully be a beautiful show! Remember that stargazing is a waiting game, and viewing is weather-dependent, so be sure to dress comfortably. This program is weather dependent and will be canceled if it’s cloudy or raining.
