Enjoy the evening night sky lit up by cascading flashes of meteors! The Perseid meteor shower is an annual event in the middle of August that produces about 100 meteors an hour. This year will be closer to a new moon, so with a quick eye, you may catch a lot of light streaking across the sky. You’ll hear astronomy folklore, search for different constellations and discover nocturnal critters that call the canyon home. Bring your own blankets and chairs to sit and enjoy the nighttime show! An optional night hike is available, but will take time away from relaxing under the sky.

Dress in layers as the evening becomes quite cool. This program is free though there is a park entrance fee per vehicle. For questions, please contact Resource Specialist Kelley Brugmann at or call 714-973-6625.
