Perseid Meteor Shower Peak Aug. 12-14: Best Viewing Tips

https://warwickpost.com/perseid-meteor- ... wing-tips/

The Perseid Meteor Shower, nature’s late-summer shooting star spectacle, peaks Aug. 12 – 13 as the Earth travels through the remnants of comet Switft-Tuttle this year with skies darkened by a new moon, with the unfortunate threat of thunderstorms, but strategic observers can still get a good show with some shrewd scheduling.

Interested meteor watchers should focus their viewing between midnight and dawn, and get as far away from city and town lights as possible. The Frosty Drew Observatory in Charlestown (the best spot in the state for stargazing with the least light pollution within the borders) will host their viewing event of the Perseids after sunset Friday Aug. 10 and through the early morning hours of Aug. 11 – bring blankets, sweaters and snacks.
