Watch A Meteor Shower At Lake Redman

The York County Department of Parks and Recreation in August will provide residents with a unique way to view one of the best meteor showers of the year.

A special Moonlight Boat Ride will be held from 11 p.m. until 2 a.m. on Saturday, August 10 at the Lake Redman Activity Area in William Kain County Park.

Boaters will go out under dark skies to spot meteors. Up to 60 meteors per hour are expected to be seen without the Moon.

York County Parks Program Coordinator Jeri Jones and volunteers will meet participants on the lake to explain what a meteor shower is and its effects. Light refreshments will be available during the program.

The Cost of the program is $30 per couple if using a County-owned boat or $20 per couple if using a private boat. Add $2 for each additional individual who participates. Please register by calling York County Parks at 840-7440.
