About the Perseid meteor shower
The Perseid meteors are meteoroids ejected from Comet 109/Swift-Tuttle. Every year at about the same time, Earth’s orbit crosses that orbit, leading to one of the most famous and ‘fiery’ meteor showers.
The Perseids are known for producing long arcs of light and colour so intense they are called ‘fireballs’. At the peak of the shower there can be 150 or more visible meteors an hour.
This promises to be an exciting meteor shower and at Silver Horse Retreat we have a brilliant view of the night sky, void of city light pollution or ocean cloud cover.
This beautiful August evening is comfortable weather to sleep outside and star gaze. Our retreat is safe and tranquil. Your choice of sleeping out in the open or in a tent. We have several tents for those who need them or bring your own. Our tipi is available for a group.
