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

It’s hard to deny the mesmerizing beauty of a meteor shower, and Montana is lucky to have wonderfully dark skies that allow us to enjoy them to the fullest. This August, Montanans will have front row seats to a particularly mesmerizing show. Meteor showers occur when Earth passes through streams of debris left behind by comets and asteroids, filling the sky with streaks of light as the rocky rubble burns up upon entering our atmosphere. This, of course, sounds much scarier than it is, as we get to enjoy it from Earth and watch it unfold as shooting stars dance across the night sky.

Checking out this incredible meteor shower should be on your bucket list. At its peak, it’s just as magical as seeing the Northern Lights.
