With all the light pollution in the Mid Atlantic Region, it’s tough for stargazers to find a prime viewing spot for astrologic events. Fortunately, folks can head to William Kain Park in the Lake Redman Activity Area for a special boat ride. This may be your chance to witness the best meteor shower in your lifetime.
On Saturday, May 24, 2014, the Earth will encounter debris from Comet 209P/LINEAR which is predicted to produce up to 200 meteors per hour. The peak will occur around 3:00 a.m. View the show from Lake Redman. You may use a County-owned rowboat, pedal boat, canoe, kayak or your private boat.
Rentals are available, but make reservations in advance. You need to bring your own flashlight for each boat. Floatation devices and rowing implements are furnished. Fees are $30/couple if using a County-owned boat or $20/couple for a private boat. Please register at (717) 840-7440.
