The Perseid meteor shower is one of the most prolific meteor showers, often producing up to 50 meteors an hour during its peak. Come with your lawn chairs, picnic blankets or just your imagination for an unforgettable evening under the stars!

Montauk Observatory telescopes and astronomers will be on site to answer any questions and lead you on your journey to the stars. This is a family friendly event and personal telescopes are welcome.
