Watch Perseid Meteor Showers at Stargazer Plateau, Sacred Rocks Reserve: Aug. 12-14
August 4, 2010 (Boulevard) Sacred Rocks Reserve, a 163-acre wilderness park with RV and tent camping sites, will offer “Streakin’ Star Party” packages for guests who want to view the Perseid Meteor Showers streak through the night sky from Thursday, August 12 through Saturday, August 14.
The park is located at an elevation of just under 4,000 feet, near Boulevard, California, approximately 65 miles east of San Diego along Interstate 8. Far from city lights, the property offers a clear vantage point from which to view the stars.
The peak of this year’s meteor shower is predicted to be between August 12 and 13, with as many as 40 meteors streaking by per hour. The “Star Party” package includes a 50% discount on tent and RV site rentals during those three nights, a community bonfire and marshmallow roast at 8:00 pm and star viewing from the park’s 300 foot “Stargazer Plateau” at 9:00 p.m. Guests are welcome to bring telescopes, lawn chairs, chaise lounges (for easy viewing) and sleeping bags and stay out on the Plateau as late as they wish.
Reservations are suggested. For information, call: 619-766-4480 or visit: www.sacredrocksreserve.com. Sacred Rocks Reserve is located at 1331 Shasta Way, Boulevard, CA, 91905. 151 extra large RV sites with complete hookup facilities are available, as well as a tent camping area, bunkhouse, general store, clubhouse, and shower facilities, and an outdoor pool and spa and Wifi service.
Sacred Rocks will be offering the same 50% discount on the night of August 27, 2010 for the “Double Moon” phenomena when Mars will be so close to Earth that it will actually appear as if there are two moons in the sky!
