    Tonight’s Topic: Perseid Meteor Shower

    The Perseids is one of the best meteor showers to observe, producing up to 60 bright meteors per hour at its peak. The shower peaks around August 12th annually, with best viewing during the early morning hours of August 13th this year. Join us for a presentation and live planetarium show to learn how to observe this spectacular meteor shower.

    Night Sky Adventures are astronomy fun for the whole family! Educators from the Dudley Observatory, in conjunction with volunteers from the Albany Area Amateur Astronomers group, present astronomy lessons, planetarium shows and night sky viewing (weather depending). Amateur astronomers and families are invited to bring binoculars or telescopes. One or more telescopes will be provided for public use.

    Come early to enjoy the museum galleries as well as the Dudley Observatory program. miSci will be open continuously from 9am through the end of the Night Sky Adventure. Beginning in September of 2018 Night Sky Adventures moves to Thursdays.
