Perseid Meteor Shower Viewing Party at Dexter State Park

Join Oregon State Parks for a night of stargazing during the peak of the Perseid Meteor Shower. Come out to Dexter State Park off Hwy. 58 on 8/10/24 at 8pm. Ranger Steve Hancock will give a short talk about meteor showers at 8:15pm and then we will search the sky for meteors. Bring a blanket to lay on, a red flashlight (red helps you keep your night vision) and any snacks and drinks you may need.  Restrooms are available at the park but drinking water is not.  This event is free but registration is recommended.  Feel free to reach out to Ranger Steve with any questions at 541-912-2047.
