MAMMOTH CAVE, Ky.- Once the sun sets at Mammoth Cave Saturday, park officials say they’re throwing a star party to celebrate the upcoming meteor shower!
The once a year event lights up the sky displaying dazzling shooting stars. Park officials say telescopes will be provided so you can learn and experience the night sky in its fullness.

We got some people are just excited about night skies and protecting our night skies here, and not just in mammoth cave but in the surrounding community. This is all apart of that it’s protecting our night skies,” says Dave Spence the Mammoth Cave Park Ranger Guide.
