Where to Watch the Leonid Meteor Shower in Cartersville
For a $5 parking fee, your family can stargaze at Red Top Mountain's "Meteors and More: Appreciating the Night Sky," set for Saturday from 7 to 10 p.m.
Astronomers anticipate several meteor showers to take place over the next month, including the famous Leonids, which after years of heavier-than-average showers, have returned and are expected to peak Saturday, Nov. 17.
So, where can you watch for shooting stars in Cartersville besides your back yard and maybe Tellus Science Museum? Red Top Mountain State Park's "Meteors and More: Appreciating the Night Sky" is set for the same night the Leonids are expected to peak—Saturday from 7 to 10 p.m.
For a $5 parking fee, your family can hear presentation by the Atlanta Astronomy Club, then search the night sky for stars and more. Georgia Astronomy in State Parks members will bring telescopes and answer questions.
