大屠杀边缘 to Great Basin National Park, Tonopah, 和 beyond, Nevada boasts some of the darkest skies in the country. Even though millions of stars, constellations, 行星, 和 galaxies are visible to the naked eye year-round here, one of our favorite astronomical events is the Perseid Meteor Shower, where 150-200 meteors streak through the sky every hour. 最好, this spectacular show happens every summer—right in the middle of Nevada’s prime-time Milky Way viewing season. Load up the whole family for a trek into some of the best stargazing conditions in the United 状态s.

耽于幻想 in the Silver 状态 gets that much sweeter during the Perseid Meteor Shower, where 150-200 meteors streak through the skies every hour.

The Perseid Meteor Shower usually begins in mid-7月y 和 continues through late 8月ust. In 2024, peak viewing is expected 8月ust 9-13, with most sources calling out 8月ust 12. Special equipment won’t be required to see the Perseids, but telescopes, dark sky charts/apps, 和 even long-exposure camera setups can enhance the experience. We also recommend finding a secluded viewing spot away from the lights of major metropolitan areas.

Some of the best 的地方 to see the Perseid Meteor Show include Lamoille Canyon & the Ruby Mountains, Tonopah 耽于幻想 Park, 月球陨坑, 大屠杀边缘Black Rock Desert, Basin 和 Range National Monument,两者都有 Great Basin National ParkDeath Valley National Park—both of which are International Dark Sky Parks with Dark Sky Ranger-led programs happening year round. Otherwise, just about anywhere in rural Nevada 和 away from metropolitan light pollution works, too.
