The Big Summer Light Show This Weekend August 08 2013, 0 Comments
The Perseid meteor shower is a favorite in the Northern Hemisphere. Occurring in the clear skies of August, the shower usually offers up to 60 bright meteors an hour.
For those of us on the west coast, the peak is in the daytime of the 12th, so the show may not be as intense as in years past. This shower is a long one though, so you’ll get the chance to see random shooting stars over several days. It’s a great time for the outdoors with friends and family, where you can sit back after a long day of hiking and enjoy the show.
Make sure to mark your Moonwater calendar on the nights of August 11-13!
