Event Details

Join local astronomers from St. Martin's University, South Puget Sound Community College, The Evergreen State College, and the Greater Olympia Astronomical Society to celebrate the annual Perseids meteor shower in a live Zoom event! Learn how light and gravity allow us to study celestial objects. Expect exciting live demonstrations, experiments, and tips for seeing more in our local night sky. Sign up here to receive a ZOOM link via email. We will send the ZOOM link out at 7:05 pm on the evening of the program. Signups will be available until one-half hour before the event. Email laref@trl.org with any questions. 

And all summer long, don't forget to check the library's Facebook and Instagram for astronomy-related experiments, crafts, videos, opportunities to share your astrophotography skills and more, all leading up to this 8/12 celebration! You'll find an astronomy scavenger hunt attached here to download and share, as well.
