Stargazing: Quadrantid Meteor Shower
January 3 @ 5:15 pm - 7:15 pm$3
>>Tickets available on December 20th, 2021 at 10:00 am ET<<
Join Vinny Coulehan of the Rockland Astronomy Club for an evening of stargazing at the Preserve. You’ll have the chance to view the night sky through a telescope and catch a glimpse of our planetary neighbors. The Quadrantid meteor shower will be at its peak on this date, so we may be in for a show! Please bring a folding chair that reclines and a headlamp with a red setting, if you have one. Meet at the Visitor’s Center courtyard, followed by a short walk on the Overlook trail to our viewing location. Dress warmly and bring water to drink. IMPORTANT: We leave promptly at scheduled times. This is a night hike, after the park has officially closed. Latecomers will not be allowed to join after the group has departed. Photo courtesy of Vinny Coulehan. Rain date: TBD. Cost: $3 + Eventbrite fees. Max: 20 people. www.RockefellerStateParkPreserve.org/events
