Late Summer Magic in the Skies – Beach Rental View of the Oregon Coastline

There’s always something magical to enjoy on the Oregon coastline, especially if you’re staying in one of the high-quality Oregon beach rentals that provide easy access to the sand, the water, and all the stars that light up the unpolluted skies at nighttime. There are meteor showers going on right now, but that is far from all. Unbelievable wonders such as the sight of a space station above you or sand that appears to glow beneath you are also part of the magic that is coastal Oregon. And now, beach goers in this wonderful stretch of land along the Pacific Ocean can even see galactic explosions when gazing at the nighttime sky. There’s never been a more amazing time to book one of the many luxurious beach vacation rentals Oregon has to offer, and enjoy the views that would be simply impossible from the beaches of big, bright cities.  

Exploding Stars
This week in August should bring viewers along the Oregon coast some spectacular views of a new nova, called Nova Delphinus 2013, which scientists recently discovered. In layman’s terms, a nova is a huge explosion that comes from a star, but not the end of the star altogether. If you can find the constellation of Delphinus with a pair of binoculars, you should be able to see it.

Glowing Sand
What appears to be glowing sand can often be found on the Oregon coast this time of year. Darker beaches may give off what appear to be greenish blue sparks as you walk on the sand at night, due to organisms known as dinoflagellates. This type of bioluminescent phytoplankton is often spotted on the beach, but it may also be hard to find. Just another magical part of the Oregon coastline!

International Space Station
The International Space Station should be visible from coastal Oregon until August 24. Viewers along the beach can enjoy glimpses of flyovers in the nighttime sky this week from their beach home rentals and pretty much anywhere along the seaside. Make sure to check the ISS schedule online so you don’t miss it!

Meteor Showers
The Perseid Meteor showers are also expected to continue until August 24. Visitors to the Oregon Coast are lucky to have the opportunity to see such a rare and beautiful event!

There are many spectacular events to witness from the Oregon coast any time of year, particularly this August. Many fine Oregon vacation beach rentals are still available, even for last minute booking. Whether you’re looking for beach condo rentals for a romantic getaway or a large home to sleep your entire family, you can find the ideal accommodations for your taste, needs and budget, and enjoy these wonders of the nighttime sky from the comfort of your home-away-from-home on the Oregon coast.
