Meteor shower

So happens that I'll be in Topeka during the peak time for the Perseid meteor shower. Can anyone suggest the best area to view the event?

Obviously the best viewing is outside of town, away from the city lights.

If you are looking for an oportunity to see ithe shower with others, Farpoint Observatory has an open house on the 10th, two days before the peak. You might also contact them for suggestions on where to go.

I just booked a pet friendly cabin out at Tuttle Creek State Park.... we are looking forward to the apex of the shower on Sunday!

Thanks for the tips. Turtle Creek seems a bit far but I hope that you enjoy the fireworks in the rustic setting.

I sent an email to the folks at the observatory so hopefully they'll respond with more suggestions.

After living in NYC and South Florida my whole life I figured that it would be relatively easy to find an area free of urban light pollution in Kansas.
