The North Dakota Sky Will Light Up With Shooting Stars And A Nearly Full Moon This Week

Get ready for an absolutely essential night of stargazing in North Dakota. With a combination of the Perseids Meteor Shower, a full moon, and the state’s incredible night skies, you’re in for quite the show. Head out to a quiet, dark place, bring a telescope, and enjoy the sights on this special night coming up this week.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date.

Do you have any plans to see the meteors or full moon? You don’t need a fancy telescope to see them – most of the meteors will be bright enough to see with the naked eye.
