Meteor Shower Coming to a Ski Resort Near You

The Perseid meteor shower is expect to bring an incredible show to the August 11th-13th night sky with meteors expected to show themselves at rates up to 150 an hour. For the best viewing you need to be in a dark place with little ambient light from the ground, we racked our brains and then realized that a ski resort would be the perfect spot.  Many resorts even have moonlight chair lift rides for the romantic and/or astronomy inclined.  So get to the mountains and catch the best shows not on earth.
