Perseid Meteor Shower

Many state parks in Michigan are planning “Meteors and S’mores” events in early August 2020 to take advantage of the Perseid Meteor Shower. You can participate by reserving a campsite at one of the participating state parks or you can head to the nearest one and enjoy the free events for the evening! We encourage you to check the parks website before making plans to make sure the event has not been cancelled. The Perseids are a fun meteor shower for sky-gazers because they can be seen without a telescope. Can't make it to a park? Drive to a nearby dark area, or, better yet, try viewing them from your backyard! You can build a campfire and/or camp out under the night sky. Don't forget the s'mores!
