Look up, way up.
It's that time of year when Earth moves through the annual Perseid meteor shower, which creates a dazzling display of shooting stars.
You are invited to watch the show this year at Aldergrove Lake Park on Aug. 12, the peak of the meteor display.
From 8 p.m. to 1 a.m., members of the Royal Astronomical Society will be on hand with telescopes and information about this celestial event.
Overnight campers should arrive at the park between 5 p.m. and 8 p.m. to set up camp. Even those who are just staying for a few hours should bring a sleeping bag, an air mattress or blanket to stay cosy while gazing up at the skies. The program, offered by Metro Vancouver Regional Parks, is weather dependent. The event will be cancelled by 4 p.m. if there is a complete cloud cover.
All ages of viewers are welcome. There is a small fee of $2 per person.
Even if you miss the Aug. 12 event, there should be great viewing of the meteor shower during clear nights leading up to that date.
Call 604-530-4983 on the day of the Aldergrove Lake Park event to confirm if the viewing will be held as scheduled.
