This week, the iconic Perseid Meteor Shower is scheduled to illuminate the skies across BC. Luckily, the forecast is calling for clear skies so ditch the city to see this incredible show!
The peak viewing time for the Perseid Meteor Shower in Vancouver is today, August 11 2021 until August 13 2021. For the best viewing opportunities, you’ll have to escape the light pollution of the city.
If you’re somewhere far from the city lights, you can see up to 100 meteors an in hour! These stunning “shooting stars” are a real gift and a beautiful opportunity to get out in nature and enjoy the night sky.
Our favourite viewing spots are either high up in the mountains to avoid the trees or along the ocean. Let us know where you’re favourite spot is to watch the meteor shower!
