Look Up Tonight!

The Eta Aquarids meteor shower is caused by Earth ploughing through the debris tail of the Halley’s Comet. They run from April 20 until May 21 this year and will reach their peak on the evening of Thursday, May 5.

Lucky stargazers in the Southern Hemisphere will see meteors dash through the sky at a rate of about 30 or 40 per hour. But Northern stargazers won’t be left completely in the dust – they’ll still be able to see about 10 to 20 meteors per hour.

Hike the Finch Arboretum and Sketch While You’re There

Finch Arboretum

Come hike in and sketch the fall colors on Friday after school. See Tera if you want to go. You will need to take Bus 60 at 1:05 and get off at Government Way. After you cross the street, you can walk up the hill until you see the sign for the Finch Arboretum. Enjoy the bright colors and the fresh air, and catch the bus back downtown when you are ready to leave.
