Join Chabot astronomers on the Observation Deck and be dazzled as we make our annual trip through the Geminid Meteor shower. The Geminids, is one of the best meteor showers to catch this year. The source of the shower is Asteroid 3200 Phaethon, a small asteroid about 3.17 miles (5.10 kilometers) across. Our astronomers will be on hand to answer questions.  

Complimentary hot chocolate will be served. Bring warm clothing or optional blankets, chairs or sleeping bags.  



We ask that all visitors over the age of 2 wear a mask during their visit in all indoor and outdoor spaces, regardless of vaccination status. Additionally, we ask visitors to wash their hands, make space for others when exploring and stay home if sick within 14 days of their visit. To reduce the risk of exposure to COVID-19 for our visitors, staff and guests, we are reducing capacity and frequently cleaning all high-touch spaces, including our telescope lens.
