Watch the Perseids meteor shower with the Hamilton Amateur Astronomers at the Binbrook Conservation Area from 8 to 11pm on Saturday August 12. Admission is free so bring the whole family for a fun evening under the stars! There will also be a meteorite display, night sky tour and members will set-up their telescopes for observing celestial objects.

Bring a blanket or lounge chair as lying down is one of the best ways to enjoy the meteor shower.

Weather and clouds permitting. No rain date scheduled. No pets please.

Donations of non-perishable food for the Hamilton Food Share program will be collected at this event.
