Perseid's Meteor Shower Star Party in Mitzpe Ramon - August 12, 2015

We are on the run-up to the great Perseid's Meteor Shower Star Party in Mitzpe Ramon, Israel, starting at sunset on August 12 and running into the wee hours of the morning of August 13. The star party is held on the infield of the soccer stadium at the main entrance to town. Admission is free. There will be dozens of Israeli astronomers present with their telescopes, and presentations are held throughout the night in Hebrew. The town turns out all of its lights, as do all of the military facilities in the area, making our already dark skies darker than ever. Thousands of people attend, and it is all a great party and fun celebration. If you haven't heard 10,000 people cheer when a bright meteor flashes overhead, you just haven't lived!

I will be there with my telescopes and will be holding a drawing to give away genuine meteor fragments every hour from 8pm to 12pm, 5 chances to win the no-cost lottery. All you have to do is show up at my booth, get a lottery ticket and get lucky!

Of course, the "star" of the star party is the Perseids Meteor Shower which peaks that night with up to 60 meteors per hour visible in the wee hours of the morning. Please join us for this fun and entertaining event. Lear about meteors and meteorites, and if you're lucky, take a piece of star dust home!
