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/
It’s going to be very cold that night, so be sure to bundle up, bring a warm beverage, and set up camp in a lounge chair so you don’t get a stiff neck from looking up for hours.
The best place in the whole state to view this or any other celestial event is Merritt Reservoir, a dark-sky location that draws thousands of stargazers a year. You should be able to see at least some meteors from anywhere in the state, though.
