Please join the Mt. Diablo Astronomical Society for its August 11 astronomy program. This month’s topic is Perseids Meteor Shower Tonight: Meteor showers, comets and asteroids: how are they different, how are they related? Count meteors until 11 pm!

Although there is no fee for this program there is a $10 park entrance fee. Bring kids, binoculars, warm clothes (temperature can drop), snacks, and water. No need for a flashlight but if you must bring one, please cover it in red plastic. Escorted exit several times during the evening through Northgate entrance.
