The Meteor Shower of the Great Bear.

As the Ursid Meteor Shower peaks overhead and the constellation Perseus comes to its highest place in its nighttime trek, cultures around the world celebrate the standing still of the sun with its mysteries.

Tonight we count shooting stars as we consider seasonal traditions that are rooted in the stars overhead.

Mackinaw City, on I-75, is at the very tip of Michigan’s mitt, the last stop before crossing the Mackinac Bridge.
