Meteor Shower Camp Out


Perseid Meteor Shower Campout

August 12-13th | 4pm – 9am
ENJOY THIS ANNUAL METEOR SHOWER IN OUR DARK NIGHT SKIES COMMUNITY

The Perseid Meteor Shower is a spectacular annual meteor shower associated with the comet ‘Swift-Tuttle’ that happens between July and August of every year. Thanks to the dark night skies of Flagstaff, we are in a prime location to view this amazing display with great clarity.

Join us for a rare opportunity to camp on the Arboretum grounds and enjoy the marvel of the Perseid Meteor shower through the lens of Lowell Observatory’s telescopes, and listen to lectures about this particular meteor shower.

Peace Surplus is a gracious sponsor of this event and has provided a limited amount of tents, sleeping bags and pads for rental that will be set up ready to enjoy the evening. Please contact Coreen Walsh to reserve a four man or two man tent for the evening. First come first serve until sold out.
