Perseid Meteor Shower Viewing at Rock Spring

View the Perseid Meteors above the fog and lights from Mt Tam! Friends of Mt Tam and members of the San Francisco Amateur Astronomer Association have reserved the Rock Spring parking area within Mt Tam State Park from 8:00pm until 12:00am on Saturday August 12th. This is expected to be peak viewing as the waning Gibbous moon will be rising before12am (moonrise is11:15pm).
This is a FMT/SFAA Members only event. Members may bring a guest. Please register and print the confirmation so we have a count and event pass. Please tell us if you are an FMT or SFAA member when registering.
Arrive before 8pm as the lower gate to Rock Spring will close shortly after 8pm. The normal closure for the gate is sunset (8:05pm) plus we want to avoid traffic to Rock Spring parking during the optimal viewing period. We will clear the Rock Spring parking area by 12am.
Bring warm clothing, water and blanket to lie back and watch the show!
