Bring your chairs and blankets to this spectacular meteor shower viewing. Gibson Ranch Park is the perfect location to gaze at the stars with wide open spaces, tucked away from the city lights.

The maximum of the Perseid activity in 2017 is expected during the night of the 12th August 2017. The Perseids is the name of a prolific meteor shower. The shower is visible from mid-July each year, with the peak in activity being between August 9 and 14, depending on the particular location of the stream. During the peak, the rate of meteors reaches 60 or more per hour. This text has been taken from cute-calendar.com
