Free

D&R Greenway Land Trust invites the public to annual Meteor Shower Watch, Thursday, August 11, at St. Michaels Farm Preserve barn complex, Hopewell Township..  Please arrive before 11:30 p.m. to avoid a stream of headlights which would interfere with viewing the night sky.  Bring binoculars and/or telescopes if you have them.  Carpooling highly recommended.  Park in gravel lot on Princeton Avenue.  Volunteers from Amateur Astronomers Association will set up telescopes for viewing the Perseid showers.

Prepare as for watching fireworks: lounge chair, blankets, warm clothing, water, juice, snacks, bug spray. Flashlights should have red lenses to protect night vision.  If you don’t have a red lens/light, please see D&R Greenway staff, who will provide these upon arrival.
