One of the best things about relaxing in a hot tub is looking up at the stars, and the Perseid meteor showers make the month of August is a great time to do just that. Some customers keep their telescopes near their hot tubs to get an up close look at the night sky. Here’s a guide to help you get the most out of star gazing in your spa.

Full Moon

There’s an added level of romance and relaxation when you sit in your hot tub during a full moon. Each full moon sticks around for several nights, so you still have a chance to make it if you’re busy one evening. For the next full moon dates, check out the Farmer’s Almanac.

International Space Station

Yes, we know you enjoy watching the stars, but have you ever considered watching for the International Space Station in your hot tub? NASA posts the dates and times that the Space Station will fly overhead, and the website also tells you where to look in the sky. Make a note of the next day and time and make plans to soak in your tub while watching for the Space Station. It’s an activity the kids or grandkids will love, too.

Meteor Shower Star Gazing

There’s nothing more breathtaking than a meteor shower. The only way to up the enjoyment factor is to watch the meteor shower from the comfort of your hot tub. Skyscrapers features information about the Perseid meteor shower plus other meteor showers throughout the year so you know what to look for in the sky (and when to look).

Grab your telescope and your sweetie and make it a date to watch the stars. Did you have an enchanting evening star gazing in your hot tub? We’d love to hear about it!
