Now that the quiet celestial season is nearly over…

Now that temperatures are finally warming up, the skies will be gradually heating up with celestial sites, including a meteor shower peaking April 21-22. They are called the Lyrids. All meteor showers are named based on the constellation that they appear to be originating from. It is a relatively minor shower, producing 10-20 per hour, typically…and are best seen by using your eagle eyes directly overhead (lying down is best), in the early morning hours after Midnight. So now, at this point, you need to watch my forecasts, to see if the weather will cooperate for those, and nearby, dates.
