CA: Head to Joshua Tree to view meteor shower

PALM SPRINGS, Calif. — Star power: Sunday is arguably the best night of the year to catch a falling star. The annual Perseid meteor shower will be on view to the naked eye and the moon will be absent during peak viewing times — from 9 p.m. Sunday until 4:40 a.m. Monday. So, with a telescope, conditions are ideal to view roughly 70 meteors an hour.

Sadly, the Rancho Mirage Library Observatory hasn’t scheduled a stargazing party that night, and the College of the Desert Astronomy Club is on hiatus for the summer.
