There’s An Incredible Meteor Shower Happening This Summer And Massachusetts Has A Front Row Seat

Massachusetts is in for a spectacular show this summer. Best of all, you don’t need to buy tickets – you just have to look up. The annual Perseids meteor shower is returning to the Bay State this season and it’s shaping up to be one of the brightest displays yet.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. 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:

The best viewing time for this shower will be between midnight and the pre-dawn hour on the evening between Aug. 12 and 13. Try to view the shower somewhere with as little light pollution as possible, such as a state park or a rural area.
