Sky Watching

We missed the super moon tonight, but hopefully, We’ll get a chance to see some Perseid action on Tuesday or Wednesday:

Every 133 years, comet Swift-Tuttle swings through the inner solar system, leaving behind a trail of dust. When the Earth passes through, the dust cloud particles hit the atmosphere at 140,000mph and burn up in streaking flashes of light, creating the spectacle known as the Perseids.

The best time to see the meteors is between Saturday and Wednesday, with activity peaking on Tuesday.

Any one have any suggestions for nice meteor watching spots around Burlington?
