Bright Meteors Will Streak Across The Northern California Sky In The Beloved Annual Perseid Meteor Shower In August

Just last month we were all talking about the recently discovered Comet NEOWISE and how you could see it. We have officially said goodbye to the comet since it’s started moving further away from Earth, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t still some cool things in store for night sky observers! After all, the beloved Perseid meteor shower which takes place every August is coming up, and it’s definitely a sight you’ll want to see.

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/
