About the Holiday

Meteor Watch Day, or also know as Meteor Day, is a holiday for skywatchers to look upward in the hopes of spotting those streaks of light that occur when a meteoroid enters the atmosphere. Meteors are also referred to shooting stars or falling stars. Many believe that if you make a wish on a shooting star your wish will come true.

According to a meteor is "a piece of rock or metal that burns and glows brightly in the sky as it falls from outer space into the Earth's atmosphere". Meteors can be seen anywhere but it's ideal when it's very dark (before dawn), away from city lights, and not when there is a full moon. They are best to view with the naked eye.

So, on Meteor Watch Day check the weather, moon calendar, and Meteor Showers Guide which shows when meteor showers will be the strongest. Perhaps plan a camp out away from the city and look up.
