If you are a stargazer and lover of celestial spectacles, than you may already be aware of The Perseid Meteor Shower that is happening this month. According to OnlyInNH.com, It is in peak August 11th through 13th and New Hampshire has a front-row seat!

This year we will have an especially bright moon so some of the meteors might be hard to see in the early morning. Expect the best view of the Perseids the night of Monday, August 12 into the early morning of Tuesday, August 13. Those who look up towards the sky during that time can expect to see the maximum number of meteors.

The AMC Highland Center in Bretton Woods, New Hampshire is supposed to be a fantastic place to view this meteor shower. They have been known to host events for it in years past. Check out their event calendar here.

If you aren't able to make a star-gazing event, the best place to view an event like this is at high elevation with no artificial light.
