April 22, 5 – 7:00 am
Join our friends at Monroe’s Orchard, (at one of the highest elevations in Portage County), for a pre-dawn viewing of the Lyrid Meteor Shower. The Lyrid shower averages 10-20 rather bright meteors per hour, although bursts of up to 100 have been recorded previously. The shower is best visible in the hours between midnight and sunrise on the morning of the 22nd.
Locating the Lyra constellation can be done through a number of means. There are a number of free star map apps you can download (yay for technology!)
Our volunteer Sky Ranger, Guy Gillespie, will be on hand with telescopes to view planets, stars, and other astronomical objects as well. Thanks to the Monroes for providing hot coffee and cider. What a way to start the day!! Check out Monroe’s Orchard and find directions.
Learn more about the Lyrids.
