Cold Creek, Cold Creek, NV 89124, USA
About the event
The Perseids are one of the brighter meteor showers of the year. They occur every year between July 17 and August 24 and tend to peak around August 9-13. The peak viewing night for Las Vegas in 2024 is August 11th - the visibility is listed as excellent this year, with up to 100 meteors per hour!
We will meet in Cold Creek starting at 6:00pm, giving time for everyone to arrive and get set up. Time and Date* cites 8:35pm as Nautical Twilight - That's when we'll have opportunity to start seeing the sky show!
Last year was a big success, so we plan to do it again! We will be providing:
- Musical accompaniment
- Firepit (don't worry - it's propane!)
- Small Telescope
Cold Creek is generally 10 degrees cooler than the valley; and can get even cooler once the sun goes down, so we suggest the following checklist:
- Jacket/dress in layers
- Pack a picnic
It will be a great way to cool down and get a break from the valley heat! Come join the stargazers!
Anyone interested in carpooling please post a comment on the event page or send us an email, don't let transportation issues keep you from coming along!
