Dear Creatives, Over the past few nights we have been star gazing & watching the Perseid Meteor Shower. Have you? Today I thought I would share how you can still possibly get a glimpse of this meteor shower or be ready for the next one!

All you have to do is make sure you:

  • view between 10pm & pre dawn
  • make sure you are away from city lights (the darker the area the better)
  • use your eyes ( a telescope or binoculars can be used but, it seems to obstruct your field of vision )
  •  be in an area with a wide field of vision, a mountain top or field ( less trees, houses means better chances )
  • For Perseid Meteor Shower: Face the general direction of north-northeast, but take in as wide an expanse of sky as possible ( for this meteor shower, different meteor showers are located in different regions & areas in the sky)  
  • Check a meteor shower calendar to see when they are happening in what regions ( see below for calendar )
