Catch the Perseids Meteor Show and other wonders of the night sky this August

Escape and connect to the cosmos this summer, accompanied by a space-themed musical journey curated by Sled Island.
Ever wanted to catch a meteor shower but don’t know where to start? Each August, the Perseids Meteor Shower lights up the sky. Imagine shooting stars peppered in the night sky and visible to the naked eye! A summer sight you don’t want to miss.

TELUS Spark has pulled together a digital stargazing guide to jumpstart your curiosity with the help of the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada (RASC) and a specially curated music playlist from Sled Island. This is a self-exploratory experience. Download the guide and plan your adventure! The Perseids Meteor Shower is visible in the night sky until late August.

What’s in the stargazing guide:
Spark’s Stargazing Guide provides a Google Map with the Royal Astronomical Society’s (RASC) recommended locations for urban sky viewing in and around Calgary. Each guide also contains tips and tricks for how to prepare and what to bring for a stargazing adventure. When you arrive at your destination, simply hit ‘play’ on the provided playlist curated by Sled Island for an acoustic experience that perfectly complements those falling streaks in the sky.

Please note, purchasing this experience includes a digital download only. The information provided is for a choose-your-own-adventure and participate at your own risk experience.
