Nature's light show: Meteor showers this week
A typical meteor shower is shown in this stock photo. One or more meteors can be seen during such a shower. (COURTESY)
For no cost at all, anybody can go outside and simply look to the skies this week to view the Perseid meteor shower, which will be at its peak through Wednesday. The shower is one of the brighter ones of the year and takes place each August. At its peak, up to 100 meteors can be seen per hour.
Hale suggested getting away from city lights for the best experience.
A Lakes Region attraction will offer one of the best platforms from which to view the shower.
The M/S Mount Washington is partnering with the McAuliffe-Shepard Discovery Center for a Friday cruise offering education, entertainment and, of course, the Perseid light show. Set to the backdrop of the shower, the three-hour cruise will leave Weirs Beach at 7 p.m. and Meredith at 7:30.
