Upcoming Events

Second Saturday Program

7:30 pm, Saturday August 13, 2022


The Perseid meteor shower extends from July 25 to August 18, as Earth passes through the debris left behind by Comet Swift-Tuttle. The shower peaks on the night of August 12-13, unfortunately this year during a full moon. BPAA President Frank Petrie describes this and other major meteor showers occurring throughout the year, and how to watch them.

This will be a live program open to the public at the Helix Building in Battle Point Park. Donations to our new planetarium projector purchase are requested and gladly accepted.

If the weather cooperates, there will be a star party following the presentation.

The program will also be live-streamed via Zoom. To receive the Zoom link, please register in advance (if clicking the link doesn’t work, copy-paste it into a new browser window):
