Shooting Stars in The Sky

Meteor Shower in the Sky over Lake Winnipesaukee.

After the sun sets on Winnipesaukee it gets dark on the lake. This makes it a great place to see Shooting Stars. This evening we are expecting a Perseids Meteor Shower, hosting a range of 60-80 meteors an hour. The skies will come alive Aug 11th. Don’t miss your opportunity to reserve the best seat in the house, Lake Winnipesaukee.

Partnering with the McAuliffe & Shepard Discovery Center we have arranged for a special night with an educational twist:

Dinner will be served promptly upon boarding. The McAullife & Shepard Discovery Center will be hosting a satellite exhibit in our steamboat lounge. This exhibit will enlighten our passengers on how shooting stars are formed as well as the difference between meteors, shooting stars, and perseids. They will also be bringing aboard several hands on meteor exhibits. These will be able to get passed around and touched by our passengers. After a short 15-30 minute talk/PowerPoint presentation, the Shepard Discovery Center will then bring people up to the third deck to give a physical lecture pointing out the differences in the meteors our passengers are seeing. This will be something new and different aboard the M/S Mount Washington.

In case of cloudy or rainy weather, you will not be bored. The Discovery Center will still be there to to show and tell. In addition there will be 2 entertainers on board playing dance music. Come dance the night away under the falling stars. Buffet dinner included.

The cruise leaves Weirs Beach at 7 PM and Meredith 7:30. (It is a 3 hour cruise from each port.)
