The New Jersey Sky Will Light Up With Shooting Stars And A Nearly Full Moon This Weekend

New Jersey may not be known for its clear skies but we do have some amazing places to see the stars. That’s quite fortunate with the upcoming meteor shower. While the nearly full moon will make seeing shooting stars a bit more difficult, the Perseids will still put on quite a show in the Garden State.

Fun fact… Though they appear much larger, most meteors are only about the size of a marble. Will you be keeping an eye out? For another incredible astronomy experience in New Jersey, check out the largest planetarium in America. Learn more by clicking here.
