Lewis-Clark professor presenting Perseid Meteor Shower talk | Events
One of the best astronomical events of the year is coming up this weekend. The Perseids Meteor Shower comes around every year with a show in the sky. If you’re looking for something local to be apart of, there will be a star party on Sunday night with Dr. Victor Kriss from Lewis-Clark State College.
They’ll be at the Nez Perce National Historical Park’s visitor center, located at 39063 US Highway 95 in Spalding, Idaho, at 7:30 p.m. To get a good view, you have to drive a ways out from the city to make sure you avoid any light pollution.
Leading up to the dark night sky, Dr. Kriss will talk about the meteor shower’s origin and will present a slide show about the Mayan Calendar and it’s speculation into next year’s Perseid Meteor Shower.
The peak of the shower will be early Sunday morning just after midnight. After Dr. Kriss’ presentation is done, you can hang out outside with your lawn chair and watch the show unfold.
