Join guest astronomers from UW-Madison as they present Badger Talks, a PowerPoint presentation about astronomy and a chance to view the night skies through a hig powered telescope.  Newport State Park in Ellison Bay is the best place to view this spectacular meteor shower as it is Wisconsin's only designated International Dark Sky Park.  No seating is available, so bring a lawn chair or blanket, flash lights or headlamps with a red lens (protests night vision).  Meet at Lot 3, follow path to shelter building.
