The Montauk Observatory will host a Geminid Meteor Shower Observation on Thursday, December 13, from 6 to 9 PM. The observatory is at the Ross School at 18 Goodfriend Drive in East Hampton. Participants will first meet in the basement of the school’s Tennis Center for a brief discussion on meteors and comets before moving outside to search the skies.
The observatory will have telescopes available. Participants have been reminded to dress for the weather and bring lawn chairs. It should also be noted that the event will only be held if the skies are clear.
The event is free, but any donations will go directly to supporting the program.
