Geminids Meteor Shower

On Wednesday, December 13, 2017, there will be a viewing opportunity to see the annual Geminids meteor shower in the large field by the picnic shelter.  Sunset will be at approximately 5:00 p.m., and if sky conditions permit, we should see the peak viewing around 2:00 a.m.  The Geminids appear to come from the Gemini constellation; however, the meteors can be seen across the entire night sky.  Come to the park and enjoy this spectacular viewing of the Geminids Meteor Shower.
