Several Maryland state parks will offer opportunities to observe the Perseid meteor shower and other celestial vistas in August.

Commonly referred to as “the Perseids,” this spectacular display of meteors is one of the most popular astronomical events of the year. At peak Aug. 11-13, between 60 and 70 meteors per hour might be seen from the ground, depending on location and weather (current weekend forecast is mostly cloudy).
