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 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/

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.
