Star Gazing in Michigan

Meteor CollageStart now to plan your (safe and socially-distant) star-gazing nights this summer. Find a place far from the city lights on a cloudless night.

  • Delta Aquarid Shower  produces about 20 meteors an hour from July 12 to Aug. 23, and peak July 28-29.  The meteors radiate from the constellation Aquarius and are best viewed after midnight and before dawn.
  • The Perseid Shower runs from July 17 through August 24, with the best viewing expected August 11-13. They can best be viewed from Dark Sky Preserves in Michigan State Parks.

Meteors look gorgeous shooting across the sky, but meteors and our planet have a history. Find out by watching Big History: Deadly Meteors. Logon with your last name and 7-digit Raider number.
