12 “Peak Night” The Perseid meteor shower happens every August as the Earth passes through debris left behind from Comet Swift-Tuttle. This year’s Perseids peak on Aug. 12 and astronomers expect rates of about 150 meteors an hour. It will be a little harder to see the Perseids this year – the moon will be three-quarters full so its bright light will wash out fainter meteors. BUT, if it’s not raining, go outside BEFORE the moon rises at 10:54pm Saturday and enjoy a shower – of meteors! If clouds get in the way, future meteor showers to look forward to: the Orionids will peak Oct. 22 and Leonids peak on Nov. 18th.
13 10:00am, come hike to the pond on the Shavertown Trail overlooking Pepacton Reservoir. Did you know Pepacton is actually the East Branch of the Delaware River? Total hike length is 2.3 miles. The trail leads to a beautiful view. More details at www.morgan-outdoors.com RSVP: at (845) 439-5507 or email back.
