HARDIN COUNTY — The Hardin County Astronomy Club will have meteor and star gazing for the Perseid meteor shower on Saturday, Aug. 10, from 9:30 p.m. to midnight at the McGuffey village park on East South Street in McGuffey, according to David Humphreys of the club.

If cloudy or raining, the club will try again on Sunday, Aug. 11, at the same time.

There will be a couple of telescopes there for viewing the planets and other astronomical objects, and visitors are welcome to bring their own telescopes and binoculars.

For comfortable viewing of the meteor shower, dress for the anticipated evening temperatures, bring a blanket to lay on the grass or a reclining lawn chair, and mosquito repellent. Also bring snacks and drinks (no alcohol) if you like and a RED flashlight.
