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.
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.
Where do you go to watch the skies in your home state? What’s the most awe-inspiring experience you’ve had stargazing in Illinois? We love hearing your stories and seeing your photos. Get in touch!
