Perseid Meteor Shower at Dominion Observatory
August 7, 2018 @ 7:15 pm - 9:30 pmFree
August is meteor month in the South Okanagan (as if you needed another excuse to enjoy this heavenly place!).
With our dark desert skies, it’s the ideal time to view the Perseid meteor shower and several planets, as well.
Spread your picnic blanket and spend this evening with your eyes to the skies at the Dominion Radio Astrophysical Observatory, enjoying the summer’s best shooting stars.
National Research Council astronomers will be on hand, offering interesting talks and telescope viewings. Refreshments will be provided, too.
Admission to this amazing natural fireworks show is free.
