Perseid Stargaze and Snoring on the Sand!

Indiana Dunes State Park Interpretive Services will be hosting its Annual Perseid Meteor Stargaze at the Indiana Dunes State Park beach pavilion. It's the only night of the year that you can stargaze and sleep on the beach. Night sky mapping and Native American sky lore begin at 8:30pm at the Beach Pavilion. After 9pm, the stars will begin to appear. Constellation talks will highlight the many star formations that can be viewed over the dunes this time of year. Additionally, the naturalists will have a telescope on hand for deep sky viewing. The evening coincides with the annual Perseid meteor shower. Participants stargazing may spend the entire night on the beach.
