Laser-Guided Stargazing Tour
Our popular Laser-Guided Stargazing Tour events take place on weekends near a new moon. Each start about an hour after dusk and last approximately 60 minutes.

Our popular Laser-Guided Stargazing Tours return to the L&A Dark Sky Viewing Area on August 6th & 7th from 10-11pm (weather permitting). Receive a laser-guided tour of the night sky from night sky enthusiast Tim Trentadue. Learn about various celestial objects, seasonal constellations, see the Milky Way and maybe spot a few early meteors from Perseid Shower! These events are a great way for novice stargazers to get acquainted with the night sky.
Note that PRE-REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED for this event and space is limited. Please wear a mask and practice physical distancing while visiting.

Perseid Meteor Shower
The Perseid Meteor Shower, the northern hemisphere’s finest annual display of ‘shooting stars’, peaks August 11th, 12th & 13th. One of the best places to see the meteors in North America is at the Lennox & Addington Dark Sky Viewing Area! If you watch the night sky for at least 15 minutes on that night, you are guaranteed to see at least one meteor—likely more. The longer you watch, the more meteors will flash through the sky.
