The Webfooted Astronomer - August 2001


Perseid Picnic at Poo Poo Point August 11

This month's Poo Poo Point Star Party on Tiger Mountain will include a picnic and the Perseid meteor shower! The picnic/star party will be held on Saturday, August 11, at 6 p.m. Bring your own food and beverages. We'll be having a potluck dessert, so bring something sweet to share. Bring your families and your lounge chairs to comfortably watch the meteor shower.

The gate to Poo Poo Point is locked, so you must meet at the gate at 6 p.m. To reach the gate to Poo Poo Point, go east on I-90 to the Highway 18 exit. Go south on Highway 18 for about 4 miles to the summit of Tiger Mountain. You'll see a sign that says "Tiger Mountain Summit." At the sign, turn off the highway to the right. You will see a wide open space with gated roads.
