How to see the Perseids from Orange County

If you're willing to drive a couple hours to get to a very dark sky, Joshua Tree and Anza Borrego are your best bets. If you want to get to the darkest skies in Orange County, these are your best bets:

Black Star Canyon

Saddleback Mountain (4x4 required)

San Clemente Pier

Ortega Highway

What time is best?

The sky needs to be completely dark with no light from the sun at all so about an hour after sunset is when you might start seeing meteors, although the later into the night, the better.
