ABOUT THE PERSEIDS
The Perseid meteor shower is an annual meteor shower that is extremely regular in its timing and can potentially be visible for weeks in the late summer sky, depending on weather and location. The Perseid meteor shower is named after the constellation Perseus, which is located in roughly the same point of the night sky where the Perseid meteor shower appears to originate from. This is a useful naming convention, but not very accurate! The source of the Perseid meteor shower is actually debris from the comet Swift-Tuttle. Every year, the earth passes through the debris cloud left by the comet when the earth’s atmosphere is bombarded by what is popularly known as “falling stars.”
This event is free and open to the public. Just meet at the Loveless Cafe sign by 8pm for instructions from your trip leader for final meeting directions along the Natchez Trace.
What to Bring
Be sure to bring warm clothing, a lawn chair or blanket, headlamp or flashlight, snacks, and beverages (maybe something warm to drink if it’s a chilly night). You are welcome to arrive and leave as your schedule permits. If you choose to meet up after 7pm just meet us at the bridge parking area.
