PUBLIC VIEWING — ALL ARE INVITED- FREE EVENT!!

DEC. 13/14th(night of Friday),  Geminids Meteor Shower.  Looking East, to the Left of rising Orion Constellation, the Gemini Constellation is the location the meteors radiant from. Two bright stars are heart of constellation. Like a pinwheel all shooting stars —up to 100 per hour, is high rate for this nice shower(many tend to have bright streaks). Unlike most meteor showers where you need to wait until early morning hours to watch at their best, this one may start as early as 8pm to 10pm for great viewing, as it is already above the eastern horizon. SiriusLookers will have a viewing at the popular Schnebly Hill vista point, about 1mile up from roundabout at Hwy. 179–and one quarter mile south of hwy 89a. Just (before) the road pavement ends and becomes dirt road, look to your Left side and you will see a nice turnout and parking area. We will be at far end. Bathrooms are nearby and all are welcome.Bring warm clothes, and sitting chairs or cushions and warm blankets.  See you there. NOTE.. There is Bright almost Full MOON present, but shooters tend to be very bright. Just look a bit away from Moon area, to keep eyes dark adapted.  I will show up about 830pm.
