Drown in a serene stargazing night at otherworldly places 

 Monday, November 7, 2022 


November 12, 1799 – that was the first time a meteor shower was officially recorded. Nevertheless, the Earth has naturally experienced meteor showers on a regular basis for much longer than just the history of humanity. They are a yearly cosmic occurrence that we can count on. To soak up in the enchanting beauty of meteor showers is a must experience for any person, at least once in their lifetimes. Some locations in the world are by far the greatest for viewing celestial occurrences, but you’re sure to see some spectacular meteors if you take a drive out on a country road or through a dimly lit area. Here are some of the best locations to enjoy meteor showers.

White Sands National Monument, New Mexico
Catching a meteor shower in this desert is just magnificent. It has few adjacent mountains to block the sky in many places and little trees in many areas. Even hiking up dunes will give you an incredible glimpse of a meteor shower. Every year in August, the White Sands National Park is treated to one of the most breathtaking, active meteor showers – Perseids in a grand celebration indeed!

Joshua Tree National Park, California
Joshua Tree National Park, designated as an International Dark Sky Park by the International Dark-Sky Association (IDA), boasts some of the darkest evenings in Southern California and gives many tourists the opportunity to see the Milky Way for the first time. While in the park, many tourists to Joshua Tree see the Milky Way for the first time. The sky at night is a sparkling dome peppered with stars, planets, and meteor showers.

Denali National Park, Alaska
The most dramatic displays of the Quadrantid Meteor Shower are typically brilliant and brief, occasionally lasting only a few hours even. Therefore, they are frequently disregarded. However, some years it actually has more meteoroids per hour than the Perseids at its most impressive display. 2014 was the year with the most number of meteors ever, with 315 in a single hour! The Denali National Park is far away from any pollution and thus, gives you the best chance to witness this spectacle. Journey into the Taigu Forest or the mountains as your heart stops with each line of the majestic Aurora Borealis!

Mercantour National Park, France
This French park is a great place to observe a universe of meteor showers as well as the expanse of the night sky. Travel across the mountains and stop in at the villages during the day, but avoid light pollution at night. Here, you may see the Perseid, Draconid, and Orionid meteor showers, among many more. The park is home to a number of tiny settlements that can be explored throughout the day before retiring down for a night of stargazing. A diversity of flora and fauna is unique to this park due to its expansive topography, ranging from high mountains to low coastline.

Big Bend National Park, Texas
You can view billions of stars from far-off galaxies by gazing up at the sky because there is so little light pollution here. The stretch of territory from Texas to the Dakotas offers several excellent locations for stargazing and meteor-spotting due to the abundance of agriculture and fewer populated areas in the middle of the country, according to Lada.
