Geminids Meteor Shower Viewing at Neale Woods

December 13, 2023 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

An image of meteors overlayed by the Fontenelle Forest logo and the words "Geminids Meteor Shower Viewing at Neale Woods."

Come experience the thrill of watching the Geminid Meteor shower at Neale Woods. This annual meteor shower is renowned for being a product of an asteroid. Our event will begin with a brief evening hike on dirt-packed trails through the prairie and forest. Then as night falls, we will stargaze together and watch for shooting stars while learning about meteor showers and general astronomy from our seasoned volunteer, Bob Fuchs. 

This event will run from 7:30-9:00 PM. Make sure to dress appropriately for the weather, wear good walking shoes, and bring a water bottle. If the weather is acceptable, please bring a folding chair to sit on while stargazing and be ready to hike a short distance on easy to moderate terrain with your chair to our meteor shower viewing area.
