CANCELLED | Perseid Star Party 08.12.16

THE 2016 PERSEID METEOR SHOWER STAR PARTY HAS BEEN CANCELLED

The Perseid Meteor Shower will be lighting up the night sky on Friday, but unfortunately, we won’t be able to see it here in Chicagoland.  Due to expected rain and complete cloud cover, the Adler and Cantigny Park are forced to cancel this year’s Perseid Meteor Shower Star Party on Friday, August 12. Thunderstorms are also predicted, and the safety of our guests, staff, and volunteers always comes first.

All ticket buyers will be refunded.

We’re so sorry we won’t be able to share the Perseids with you, but we’ve included a few tips on how you can view the meteor shower once the sky is clear enough to #LookUp. While the peak of the show is Friday night, some Perseid meteors will still be visible under clear dark skies on Saturday night. After Friday, your best chance of seeing some lingering Perseid meteors is late Saturday night into Sunday morning, with fewer visible each night after that through August 26.

The Adler offers other skywatching opportunities, including ‘Scopes in the City and observation days at our Doane Observatory. Come out and observe with us at a future event!
