perseids party

Residents are urged to catch the shooting stars on Aug. 14 at Briar Patch Shelter in Bonneyville Mill County Park.

BRISTOL — Summer’s biggest meteor shower will peak next week and Bonneyville Mill County Park is throwing a Perseids Party to catch the stellar show on Saturday, Aug. 14.

Each year, the Perseids meteor shower dazzles stargazers with more than 70 meteors an hour visible to the naked eye during its peak. The free meteor shower viewing party at Bonneyville Mill will take place at the Briar Patch Shelter, which offers clear views of the sky away from city lights, and plenty of “space” for all.
