Perseids Meteor Shower

Join Chabot astronomers for a watch party of one of most abundant meteor showers of the year, the Perseids. Every August the earth passes through the debris of the giant Comet Swift Tuttle, the origin of this famed shower. Named for the radiant point or region of the sky where the shower appears to originate, is the constellation Perseus, although meteors can been seen through the sky. Hot chocolate.
