Join Chabot astronomers for a watch party of one of most abundant meteor showers of the year, the Perseids. Every August, the Earth passes through the debris of the giant comet Swift-Tuttle, the origin of this famed shower. Named for the region of the sky where the shower appears to originate, the constellation Perseus, these meteors can be seen flashing across any part of the sky.
Join East Bay Astronomical Society Member Gerald McKeegan at midnight for a talk about the science behind the shower. Then head out to the Observation Deck for a night spotting meteor!
