Watch Up To 100 Meteors Per Hour In The First Meteor Shower Of 2020, Visible From New Hampshire
The New Hampshire night sky is beautiful throughout the year. During a beautifully warm night, there’s something special about laying on your back and gazing upwards to see the stars. There never a shortage of fun things dancing above. Of course, some of us don’t need a warm night to stargaze! Bundle up with friends and get out there. Especially in the next few weeks when one of the most spectacular meteor showers of the year is going to be visible.
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.

Michelle has lived in many places, but counts Maine as one of the best. In addition to the smell of ocean water in the air on rainy days in Portland, she loves puppies, photography, funny people, the Maine Red Claws, traveling, fresh tomatoes, Cambodia and filling out forms.
