See A Month Full Of Meteors From Nebraska During The Delta Aquariid Meteor Shower

We may not be able to do all of the fun summer things this year that we usually do, but there’s at least one thing the coronavirus can’t take from us: the stars. You don’t have to be a die-hard astronomy enthusiast to get out there and enjoy the Delta Aquariids this summer. And as an added bonus, a second meteor shower overlaps the Delta Aquariids, giving you an even better chance of spotting some shooting stars.

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:

As with most meteor showers, your best chances of seeing the display in the sky are between midnight and dawn. If you’re heading out to view the show, get to a dark spot away from light pollution and turn off all lights (including your phone!) for at least 30 minutes to allow your eyes to fully adjust to the dark.
