The annual Perseid’s meteor show is almost here.

Each year in August, if you can escape from the light pollution of the city, you can see one of the best and brightest annual meteor showers. It has been known to produce between 60 and 100 meteors per hour.

This year the best viewing (as long as their are no clouds) should be between Aug. 10 and Aug. 13.

The Perseid meteor shower gets its name from the constellation Perseus, from which the shooting stars appear to originate.

Michigan’s state parks are great spots for stargazing during the Perseid meteor shower, and some of them are offering s’mores to those who show up to watch the shower.

The Department of Natural Resources says “Meteors & S’mores” events are planned for many state parks from Saturday through Aug. 16.

There is no charge to attend Meteors & S’mores, but a Recreation Passport is required for any vehicle entering a Michigan state park.
