Check Out The Perseid Meteor Shower's Peak August 11th & 12th Right Here on Long Island!

 What could very well turn out to be the best night for stargazers all year long is almost upon us. Astronomers are predicting a big outburst from the Perseid meteors as they peak between the evening of August 11th and morning of August 12th, potentially lighting the sky with as many as 200 meteors per hour. 

The actual number of visible meteors will vary depending on when they peak–if the outburst occurs earlier Thursday night there won't be quite as much to see, but if it occurs later Friday morning in the pre-dawn hours it could be quite the stunning display.

Berries Galore: Where To Pick Long Island's Juiciest Fruits

Spring has arrived on Long Island, and that means berry-picking season won't be far behind. While it is certainly convenient to stop by the grocery store for a package of fruit, there's nothing quite like plucking your own fresh berries straight off the vine. 

You don't even need to grow the berries yourself, as LI is full of farms where you can go to pick as many strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, and other fruit as you like. 

Of course, you'll want to check that each respective fruit is in season before you head out to the farm.
