Astronomy at Grace Farms | Taurids Meteor Shower

Wednesday, November 6, 2019, 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm

Associated with the Comet Encke, the Taurid Meteor Shower offers bright, spectacular shooting stars. Join New Canaan High School Planetarium Director Tim Haag and Grace Farms Foundation Nature Initiative Director, Mark Fowler, to learn about the Taurids, and search the sky as we look for shooting stars. Preceding the meteor shower, we invite you to meet artist and designer Monique Péan in the Pavilion at 7:30 to view her collection of meteorites and meteorite-focused works.

Please bring your binoculars. Telescopes will be available, but visibility is dependent on the weather.
