Here Are The Best Times And Places To Watch The Perseid Meteor Shower In New Hampshire

For star-gazers, one of the best times of the year is upon us! The Perseid Meteor shower will make its annual appearance next week and we’re already making our plans for viewing it. While the spectacle takes place throughout the month, it’s expected to be in peak form from August 11th through the 13th. And, New Hampshire is lucky enough to have a front-row seat. This viewing event is a great way to get up-close and personal with this incredible event.
