“Wonderful cabin, beautiful and enjoyed staying here very much. Would definitely come back. Thanks so much!”
–Chris & Alli (2/14)

“A great place for a family to get away and have some fun!”
–Reasoner Family, San Diego (12/13)

“My husband and I stayed a week at this DARLING cabin for our honeymoon this summer. We loved it!! It was cozy and very nicely furnished. Everything was clean and well-kept. We fell in love with the town of Big Bear and enjoyed kayaking, hiking and walking through the village. There are several restaurants within walking distance of the cabin. And even better than that, there’s a park just down the street that we walked to every night to enjoy the sunset over the water. Our stay was quiet and cozy. It looks just like the pictures. The Maeda’s are very hospitable, kind and they gave us all the information we needed and they responded to questions very quickly. I heartily recommend this cabin. You must stay here! 🙂 It’s lovely.”
–Emily, Seattle, WA (7/13)

“Loved how homey this place was. So mesmerizing! Thank you!”
–Uzma & friends (1/13)

Camel-o-par-whats-it? Camelopardalids. Common pronunciations are camel-oh-PAR-dahl-idz, kah-MEL-oh-PAR-dal-idz, and camel-oh-par-DAL-idz. It it’s too much of a tongue twister, you are camelopardon-ed. 🙂

A Brand New Meteor Shower!
On May 24, 2014, the Earth will travel through debris ejected from comet 209P/LINEAR in the 18th, 19th, and 20th centuries. If the comet was actively producing a lot of dust during that time, the Earth may be treated to a new meteor shower, tentatively named the May Camelopardalids. The May Camelopardalid radiant is in the constellation Camelopardalis, which translates to “camel leopard” or giraffe.

Here’s the Comet 4-11
Comet 209P/LINEAR is a Jupiter-family comet discovered by the Lincoln Laboratory Near-Earth Asteroid Research (LINEAR) project in 2004. While orbiting, the closest it comes to the Sun is 0.9 AU (84 million miles) and the farthest it gets from the Sun is about 5 AU (465 million miles), close to Jupiter’s orbit. This year, 209P will have a close approach to Earth on May 29. It will come within a distance of 0.04 AU of our planet. That’s about 3.7 million miles – a pretty close shave in cosmic terms. But no worries, there’s no chance it will hit us.
Recent data shows that 209P is not very active, meaning it’s not releasing much gas or dust. But there is no data that can tell us how active 209P was in the 18th and 19th centuries, when we think the up-coming intersecting debris trails were created. If the comet wasn’t very active back then, we may not even have a meteor shower on May 24. But if it was, we could be in for a treat.

How can I enjoy the show?
North America has a pretty good seat for this cosmic event. First, check the visibility map to make sure it’s visible from your location. Then check the weather – if you are expecting clouds, then Mother Nature has just rained on your parade, you won’t be able to see any meteors. If the weather gods are smiling down upon you, find a safe, dark location and lay out beneath the stars. You don’t need to look in any particular direction, just straight up. Meteors can appear all over the sky. Add a lawn chair or sleeping bag and snacks and you should be set!

We had another shot of winter weather in Big Bear Lake the last few days (what’s up Mother Nature?!?), but the weather is expected to be spectacular over the Memorial Day Weekend with highs in the low 70’s and sunny skies.

Friday night’s meteor shower is just the beginning of a very “starry” weekend in Big Bear. Enjoy the show from the lake on a boat cruise or attend the ‘Campfire Star Party’ at the Discovery Center. There are also a few ‘star parties’ going on. See the flyer below for details.

Saturday brings the much anticipated “StarLight Festival” to Big Bear with exhibits, hands-on activities and a whole lot of fun for all ages. Saturday night, check out Jefferson Starship live in concert at The Cave in The Village.

Sunday, take part in the Big Bear Half-Marathon and Memorial Fun Run. The Lifestyle Expo with vendors and live music is FREE.

On Monday, take the family to the Antique Car Club ‘Show & Shine’ and Pinewood Derby.

Add to these unique events all of the dozens of summertime activities available and you get a weekend full of fun and memories!

If you find yourself in need of a place to stay, visit RS Vacations on our website and score a great deal on a cabin rental. See you soon!!
