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 as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
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.
