The Illinois Sky Will Light Up With Four Meteor Showers This November

November brings a miraculous meeting of meteor showers to Illinois. With four astronomical phenomena coming together to celebrate the start of winter, Plains State residents should start planning stargazing getaways today. Meteor showers are best taken in late at night or right before dawn, which makes them easy to miss. Trust us, though, you don’t want to sleep on this opportunity to be stunned by the stars.

While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:

In Indiana, all you need to find a falling star is to escape the city lights and find an unobstructed view of the sky. We recommend rural areas and parks with peaks that take you above the treeline.
