There’s An Incredible Meteor Shower Happening This Summer And Wyoming Has A Front Row Seat

Wyomingites, perhaps more than anyone else in the country, are used to seeing a dark, starry sky. With minimal light pollution in most of the state, big, starry skies are a way of life! That makes it all the more special when the cosmos put on a show, like they do every August during the Perseid meteor shower. If you’ve never gone out of your way to catch the Perseids in Wyoming, make this the year you start star-hunting!

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. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:
