St Pete Beach Meteor Shower Watching August 2012

St Pete Beach Meteor Shower Watching August 2012

Head to St Pete Beach this weekend and you stand a great chance of watching an amazing Meteor Shower.

If you love watching shooting stars then look up between 11 pm and 4 am on August 11, 12 and 13th 2012 for the best opportunity for seeing the Perseids Meteor showers.

Best places to watch the Meteor shower near St Pete Beach

Head to the beach!  I am going to go to an area away from the larger hotels because the darker it is the better chance we have of seeing this amazing display of nature. What better place to watch a Meteor shower than on the sand at St Pete Beach.

Head out to sea! If you are lucky enough to own a boat then this would be an amazing way to star gaze and get all the darkness you need.

No boat? There are many places that do sunset boat trips. I want to give a big thumbs up and shout out to Dolphin Landings Charter Boat Center – Captain Dan plans some amazing sail boat trips that harmonize with natures wonders. See if he still has room for his evening Shooting star trips or ask about the blue moon trip on August 31, 2012. Call: 727 360 7411 for trip information.

Corey Avenue – browse the shops, stop for a drink at one or two of the bars and then keep walking away from the stores (past the theater) to the end. It is pretty dark by the water at this time of night (early morning).

Find your own little place of darkness and if you can stay awake long enough enjoy natures display of shooting stars this weekend on beautiful St. Pete Beach.

P.S. – August 31st is the night to see a blue moon!
