Perseids Meteor Shower
Perseids Meteor Shower

The Perseids is one of the best meteor showers to observe, producing up to 60 meteors per hour at its peak. It is produced by comet Swift-Tuttle, which was discovered in 1862. The Perseids are famous for producing a large number of bright meteors. The shower runs annually from July 17 to August 24. It peaks this year on the night of August 12 and the morning of August 13. The second quarter moon will block out some of the fainter meteors this year, but the Perseids are so bright and numerous that it should still be a good show.

Meteors will radiate from the constellation Perseus, but can appear anywhere in the sky.

Bryan Hansel - The Dark Skies of the Boundary Waters Region - cancelled

Chik-Wauk Museum and Nature Center | Grand Marais MN

The Boundary Waters region boasts some of the darkest night skies in the world. On the Bortle scale, a scale that rates the darkness of the night skies with 1 being the darkest and 9 the brightest, the BWCAW is mainly a 2, but it even contains a 1. During the presentation, you will see night images from the region, including Milky Way shots, star trails and northern lights.
You will learn how to make night images of your own.

Bryan is an award-winning professional landscape photographer and outdoor educator. He has over 25 years of photography experience. His programs take students to the best and often unknown locations in the northland and across the nation.

New Moon Stargazing
New Moon Stargazing

New moon nights – night when the moon is absent from the sky – make for great stargazing.

Here’s a great way to start – look due north after the sun has set and find the Big Dipper constellation [see photo] with its telltale 3-star handle and 4-star dipper.

In the summer, the dipper is at ‘9-o’clock’ and hangs dipper down.
In the autumn, the dipper is at ‘6-o’clock’ with the dipper facing up/handle to the left.
In the winter, the dipper is at ‘3-o’clock’ with the handle hanging down.
In the spring, the dipper is at ’12-o’clock’ with the dipper facing down/handle to the right.
