Here Are The Best Times And Places To Watch The Perseid Meteor Shower In Delaware

Delawareans are lucky enough to live in a state where the rural back roads still show off stunning night skies. While there’s plenty of light pollution thanks to nearby cities, it’s not too hard to find a dark spot in the First State where you can find and appreciate constellations, the Milky Way, and even – if conditions are right – an incredible meteor shower. Mark your calendar for August 12-13, when the Perseid meteor shower comes to town.

If you’d rather not stay out so late to watch the stars, consider joining Brandywine Creek State Park on their Starry Night, Full Moon, or Owl Prowl hikes after dark throughout the rest of the summer and into fall.
