Meteor Shower and Planet Watch night
Sat. Aug 11 8:15 PM to 2:00 AM on Aug 12
Broken Arrow Chisholm Trail Events Park
21101 E 101st St, Broken Arrow, OK

As of 5:30 PM we are still going to be at the park.
Weather report indicates afternoon showers will weaken near sunset.
If its partly cloudy we may still view some planets.


The public is invited to join us under the stars for a night watching meteors and viewing planets. The planets Venus, Jupiter, Saturn and Mars will be well placed for telescope viewing. Also the annual Perseid Meteor shower reaches its peak that weekend. The shower produces about 50 meteors per hour from dark skies. But we should be able to see several dozen meteors from this site. No special equipment is needed to watch meteors. Just sit back and watch the sky overhead. Bring along a notepad to record your sightings and come enjoy the show.

There is plenty of parking. Bring your lawn chairs, or a blanket to sit on. Bring along something to drink or snack on. ( no alcohol please ) The park has no running water but does have two portable toilets.

IN CASE OF CLOUDY WEATHER or STORMS in our area CHECK BACK at this website. If Cancellation is needed we will post it about 5:00 PM Saturday.
