The Lewis & Clark Confluence Tower in Hartford is hosting a special presentation Friday night that will appeal to amateur astronomers and the curious stargazer alike. The Geminids meteor shower will be taking place that night, and amateur astoronomer Steve Sands will be there to speak to the visitors and accent their experience.
Tower Manager Amy Curry says he will begin a group discussion around 7pm, and then there will be viewing opportunities until midnight.
Some attendees will venture up to the top of the tower, 150 feet above the ground. It's regular price to go up in the tower, which is $5. Sands' talk will include the passing around of samples of meteorites. Reservations are not required.
