I’ve dreamt of catching the Perseid shooting star event for a long time. I booked an Airbnb stay near Mount Megantic for August 13th 2017. The weather forecast at the time was iffy.
It turned out to be a pitch black night with a cloud cover. It was so dark I couldn’t even make out my feet. I’ll try again in 2020 if my schedule allows it – it’s an amazing motorcycle ride to get there.
