Don't forget to look up Saturday night.
The Perseid meteor shower takes place primarily Aug. 11 through Sunday morning Aug. 12, and according to NASA, stargazers could see upward of 100 meteorites flash before them per hour.
Where and how to view close to Baldwin Park:
According to Astronomy.com, the Perseid Meteor shower has some added bonuses this year: it will occur on a night when the moon is in its waning crescent phase, which means the moonlight will interfere only slightly with your view of the meteors, and it's on a Saturday night, which means people can stay up late and sleep in the next day.
You don't even need a telescope. Just spread out a blanket, maybe a late-night picnic, lay back and enjoy!
The weather, so far, is predicted to be clear, so you should have a good view.
Avoid city lights. The further you get from town, the better your view will be.
