March Meteor Showers Guide

February is the least active month to watch meteor showers. There is only one visible throughout the month.

Meteor showers are some of the coolest celestial events to witness. It is not necessary to use a telescope or binoculars to watch them, making them some of the most accessible as well for people that are just getting into astronomy and stargazing.

Every month there are a few meteor showers. They are very consistent and happen every year around the same dates and in the same location in the sky.
