The Perseids is one of the best meteor showers to observe, producing up to 60 bright meteors per hour at its peak. The shower runs annually from July 17 to August 24 and peaks on the night of August 12th and the morning of the 13th. Join us for a presentation and live planetarium show to learn how to observe this spectacular meteor shower.

Night Sky Adventures are astronomy fun for the whole family! Educators from the Dudley Observatory, in conjunction with volunteers from the Albany Area Amateur Astronomers group, present astronomy lessons, activities, planetarium shows and night sky viewing (weather depending). Amateur astronomers and families are invited to bring binoculars or telescopes. One or more telescopes will be provided for public use. Great for all skill levels!
