(PAYNETOWN) - Monroe Lake will host a viewing event for the Geminids meteor shower at Paynetown State Recreation Area on Sunday, December 13.

The event will take place near Deer Run Shelter from 6:30 to 8 p.m. A directional sign will be posted at the entrance gatehouse.

Usually one of the strongest showers each year, the Geminids often produce bright and intensely colored meteors.

Monroe Lake naturalist Jill Vance will explain the science behind the meteor shower and provide a fire for warmth and hot chocolate. Visitors should bring folding chairs or blankets to recline on for more comfortable sky viewing.

The program requires clear or mostly clear skies and will be canceled if there is too much cloud cover.

If sky conditions look questionable on December 13, check the program status any time after 4 p.m. by calling (812) 837-9967 or going to facebook.com/monroelake.

Paynetown SRA on Monroe Lake (stateparks.IN.gov/2954.htm) is at 4850 South State Road 446, Bloomington, 47401.
