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.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

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.
