Star Gazing Party

Star Gazing Party

Presented by Gibson Ranch Regional Park at Gibson Ranch Regional Park

Bring your chairs and blankets to this spectacular meteor shower viewing. Gibson Ranch Park is the perfect location to gaze at the stars with wide open spaces, tucked away from the city lights.

The maximum of the Perseid activity in 2017 is expected during this night. The Perseids is the name of a prolific meteor shower. The shower is visible from mid July each year, with the peak in activity being between August 9-14, depending on the location of the stream. During the peak, the rate of meteors reaches 60 or more per hour. The Sacramento Astronomical Society will be bringing in telescopes.

This event is dog friendly and bringing your own chair and telescope is recommended.

Note: Most tickets sold out. RV camping still available.
