We started the event with 3 Astronomy 101 presentations with 187 participants in attendance. During the presentations we gave an overview of the objects visible in the night sky. These objects included Mars, Jupiter Saturn, Meteors and the Perseid Meteor Shower. There were also resources available in the lobby before and after the presentations. 

Unfortunately, due to inclement weather we had to cancel telescope viewing.

This event is always popular and couldn't be successful without our partners from the Delmarva Space Sciences Foundation, US Fish & Wildlife Services (Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge) and National Park Service (Toms Cove Visitor Center). 

We look forward to hosting this event again with clear skys 2019!
