Winter is the best time to observe the night sky; the cold air doesn’t hold humidity very well, resulting in very clear skies. December is also well known for the Geminids Meteor Shower that falls from December 4 to December 17, with its peak being between December 13 and 14. We’ve learned that in past years as many as 120 meteors painted green streaks across the sky in just one hour. Join Crystal in this evening program to learn where the meteors originated, make a constellation projector to decorate your room, and then observe the early meteor showers from the SoFo’s upper deck. Dress warmly and bring a comfortable folding chair or blankets. Limited enrollment. If there is rain or heavy cloud cover, the program will take place the following night. Advance reservations are required for all events.
Participants must call (631) 537-9735 for reservations and information about meeting places. There is no charge for SoFo members. Non-member fee is $7 per adult, $5 per child 3-12 years of age. Fees include admission to the museum on the day of the program.
