[DNR] Watch the Perseid meteors at Paynetown SRA, Aug. 12
Start Date: 7/29/2013Start Time: 12:00 AM
End Date: 7/29/2013End Time: 11:59 PM

Event Description
Monroe Lake is inviting people to Paynetown State Recreation Area on Monday, Aug. 12, for a Perseid meteor shower party.

The party runs from 9:15 to 10:30 p.m. at Deer Run Shelter.

Monroe Lake naturalist Jill Vance will explain the origin of the Perseid meteors at 9:15 p.m. Visitors are then invited to munch on snacks, make a space-themed craft and watch for “shooting stars.”

Visitors should bring something to sit on. Vance recommends a blanket.

“You can lie down and gaze up for the best, and widest, view of the sky overhead,” she said. “When you’re sitting in a chair, it’s a bit uncomfortable to keep your head tilted back the whole time.”

The program will be canceled in the event of overcast or stormy skies. Call the Paynetown Activity Center at (812) 837-9967 between 7 and 8:30 p.m. the day of the party to check program status.

Paynetown State Recreation Area is at 4850 S. State Road 446, Bloomington. The entrance fee is $5 per in-state vehicle or $7 per out-of-state vehicle.

Monroe Lake (stateparks.IN.gov/2954.htm) is at 4850 South State Road 446, Bloomington, 47401.
