Here we go again in New England, and this time we should have a beautiful view of some celestial excitement.

Earlier this summer when the incredible cosmic event of Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn lined up perfectly with the moon, New Englanders had trouble seeing it perfectly because of our geography.


Astro enthusiasts, here we go!  First of all, you don't have to be into astronomy to know about the famously beautiful annual Perseid Meteor Shower.  Even laymen look forward to it each year, and for good reason.  According to NASA, Perseid generates between 50 to 100 meteors per hour at the peak of its glorious light show that takes over our night sky.  This year's Perseid meteor shower starts Thursday night, August 11, and continues into the early morning hours of Friday, August 12.

Secondly, we have just one more supermoon for 2022 after having three beauties earlier this year.  These supermoons happen when the earth and moon are closest to each other, often making our jaws drop and inspiring tremendous photography from all around the world.   According to the Old Farmer’s Almanac, this full moon will be at its most glorious at 9:35 pm on the night of August 11 as the Perseid shower commences.

Now if you're wondering if the meteor shower will be drowned out because of this supermoon, wonder no more.  According to, Perseids is one of the year's brightest meteor showers, so we will most definitely have quite the spectacular show.
