I love being able to linger outside during the wee hours of the morning to watch meteorite showers in the sky over our hunting shack. Looks like I’ll have ample opportunity this year. Click here to see EarthSky’s Meteor Shower Guide for 2019. Watching the night sky always brings me a sense of peace along with a feeling of awe from the marvel of it all. So start planning a get-away out in the wilderness — away from the lights of the populated areas — where you can catch a glimpse of the 2019 meteorite showers.
As EarthSky tells us, “remember … meteor showers are like fishing. You go, you enjoy nature … and sometimes you catch something.” Sounds like a good way to enhance one’s wellbeing!
EarthSky derived the peak dates for their guideline from data published in the Observer’s Handbook by the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada and Guy Ottewell’s Astronomical Calendar.
