Iowa’s astronomers have claimed that Whiterock Conservancy, a nonprofit land trust, is one of the darkest places in Iowa making it the best place in the state to view the meteor shower.
The shower can be seen any time after dark, particularly from midnight to dawn, the best time being 1:00 a.m. after the half-moon sets.
Also, amateur astronomers from all over the Midwest will come together Friday, August 30 at Whiterock Conservancy for their 9th Annual Star Party. The event will allow astronomy lovers to come together for several nights of stargazing, telescope comparing, and a banquet which will include a speech by a featured astronomer.
