DOUBLE Sky Guy Viewing ALERT: Moon & Venus 4/21 - Lyrid Meteor Shower Peak NIGHT OF 4/22-23

Hey Space Placers!

A double Viewing ALERT.

Venus and the Moon will be a stunning sight in the sky after sunset on April 21 in the western sky. Be sure to check out this beautiful alignment:

Look for Earthshine on the Moon. Binoculars will help in the view.

The night of April 22/23 is the peak of the Lyrid Meteor Shower. This is worth a peek as it can produce some bright meteors.

You can read about the Lyrids here and here (including a live feed during the shower).

Here's to clear skies!
