Have you ever wanted to camp at Wild Again!?
Have you ever wanted to camp out and stay the night at Wild Again?! Now’s your chance! Escape the city lights and witness one of the most spectacular meteor showers of the year.
Join us on Saturday, August 11th for an overnight meteor shower stargazing event. Bring your folding chairs, tents, and sleeping bags. We’ll have a campfire, vegan friendly food on the grill available to purchase, drinks, and plenty of good times around the fire and watching the meteor shower! Admission is by tickets that can be purchased right HERE on Eventbrite!
The event starts at 8pm, feel free to stay as long or as short as you like but we are encouraging everyone to bring their tents and camp for the night (we have plenty of room to spread out!). Dinner will be available to purchase from 8:30-9:30pm. Port-a-john restroom on site. Although we love pets and animals, its best if dogs stay at home for this one. We have many many walks of life that wander the property and might be disturbed by our K9 friends. Kids are welcome but must be on leashes….. just kidding, kinda. If children are found wandering alone, they’ll be sent home with a raccoon.**
About the meteor shower:
According to NASA meteor expert Bill Cooke, the Perseids are perhaps the most popular meteor shower of the year; and this year, they'll be the best shower of the year. This year during peak people should see about 60-70 meteors per hour, but in outburst years (such as in 2016) the rate can be between 150-200 meteors an hour. The meteor shower's peak will be visible both the nights of Aug. 11-12 and Aug. 12-13, Cooke said, but he's inclined this year to lean toward the night of Aug. 12-13 for the better show. (Both, however, should be spectacular.)
"This year the moon will be near new moon, it will be a crescent, which means it will set before the Perseid show gets underway after midnight," Cooke told Space.com. "The moon is very favorable for the Perseids this year, and that'll make the Perseids probably the best shower of 2018 for people who want to go out and view it." The Perseids are rich in fireballs, so the show should be even better. (www.space.com)
**Kids are most certainly welcome but must be supervised as this is an after-dark event at a working animal rescue.
