(VIRTUAL) Shooting Stars and Meteor Showers 

August 6 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Shooting Stars and Meteor Showers, August 6, 2021 at 7 pm

Many know shooting stars for the striking trails of light they give off, but their name is misleading since they are neither shooting nor stars. These light trails, also known as meteors, are fragments of either comets or asteroids. Find out how to witness these mesmerizing light trails for yourself! 

We’ll take questions at the end of the program through the chat. Recommended for ages 5 and up. 

This LIVE event will take place on YouTube. To RSVP, complete the check out and the YouTube link will be emailed to you along with your receipt. A reminder email with the link will also be emailed to you 1 day before the program. If you don’t receive any emails, please check your spam folder or email us at planetarium@uwm.edu
