Meteor Shower Program @ Discovery Center at Oakwoods Nature Preserve
Oct 21 @ 6:00 pm
A planetarium program about the meteor shower produced by dust from Halley’s Comet will be held at 6 p.m. Oct. 21 in the Discovery Center at Oakwoods Nature Preserve. Hancock Park District staff will present the program with other constellations and photos of planets and galaxies. After the program, there will be viewing of the meteor shower, which radiates from the constellation Orion and produces about 20 meteors per hour. The free program is recommended for individuals 5 years and older, accompanied by an adult. Because of limited space in the inflatable planetarium, registration is required by 4:30 p.m. Oct. 19. The program will be held with a minimum of six and a maximum of 25 participants. For more information, call the park district office at 419-425-7275.
