Guernsey Perseid Watch
Oct 18 @ 4:00 pm – Oct 18 @ 12:00 am

Last year, Guernsey State Park proved to be one of the more popular places to view the 2017 Solar Eclipse, this year enjoy the Guernsey Perseid Watch, the best meteor shower of the year, Aug. 10-12 at Yurts 1 & 2.

The Perseids are created when the earth passes through the dust and debris created by the Comet Swift-Tuttle, the largest object to regularly pass by earth.

The comet has a nucleus approximately 16 miles wide. This year, according to NASA, people should be able to see approximately 60-70 meteors per hour.

The weekend events begin August 10 with a 4 p.m. museum talk focusing on meteor observing.

A star watch party with telescopes will begin at approximately 8:45 p.m. with Venus, Jupiter, Saturn and Mars in full view.

The night’s star watch will provide an emphasis on planets, deep sky objects and constellation identification.

Participants can expect to return to their campsites around 10:30-11 p.m.

Events on August 11 will be much the same as the night before with a 4 p.m. museum talk (the same presentation) and a star watch beginning at 8:45, also emphasizing plants, deep sky objects and constellation identification.

However, an all-night viewing will be held. Visitors are encouraged to bring cots, sleeping bags, flashlights and food if they plan to participate.

On August 12, a Perseid Meteor Watch will take place. Star Party participants will use telescopes until approximately 10:30 p.m. The meteor watch begin around 11 p.m.

Visitor are encouraged to observe until dawn, but participants may leave when they wish. The number of meteors seen increases significantly after midnight.

The night programs are led by Gary A. Becker and Peter K. Detterline, both professors of Astronomy at Moravian College and Kutztown University, respectively. Both are members of the Mars Desert Research Station.

Like with the solar eclipse, the lack of light population at Guernsey State Park makes it a prime area to view the Perseids.
