The Perseids are coming!

North America's favorite meteor shower will be most visible to Michigan stargazers on August 11, 12, and 13.

The biggest question is: will the weather be on our side for this celestial show?

Time to plan your Perseid party!

The annual meteor show we enjoy each August is expected to be extra special this year.

Beginning this weekend, state parks are hosting a special weeklong stargazing event.

The annual Perseid meteor shower will reach its peak during the next few days.

Elissa Dennert is with the Department of Natural Resources. She says nearly two dozen state parks will host stargazing events to give people a great view of the heavens.
