A Night of Countless Wishes

Many of you may have already enjoyed the peak of the Perseid meteor shower which has been in full effect since Wednesday night, but for us, tonight is the night to wish upon a star – or several hundreds of meteors.  This particular meteor shower follows the comet Swift-Tuttle which makes its way near our planet every 133-135 years – so, this is likely your only opportunity to catch this show 😉

My kids have been anticipating this night for weeks – my son was even willing to forgo a trip to California with his grandparents if it was going to be a conflict with this event.  Part of the excitement for him includes staying up way past bedtime, eating smores by the fire, and camping out in a tent…all in his aunt & uncle’s back yard, but that is still super cool when you’re seven.

So, if you haven’t yet, take the time to drive beyond the boundaries of the bright city lights and enjoy one of the most spectacular shows you’ll ever see – no tickets required – and don’t forget to make a wish…or hundreds of them!
