Lyrid Meteor Showers in Bozeman, Montana

Just a heads up for all you night owls, early birds, astronomy buffs, romantics, etc., the Lyrid meteor shower is happening this month. It occurs annually from April 16 to April 25, but the experts predict that it will peak on the 22 or 23 (leaning toward the 23). The time to watch is the dark hours before dawn. Expect to see approximately 20 meteors per hour, but on rare occasions, as many as 100 per hour have been spotted, although that type of activity is not expected for 2015.

So grab your thermos, lawn chair, blanket/sleeping bag, and your favorite sweetheart; find a patch of open sky far from the city lights and prepare to watch Mother Nature put on a show. Awesome stuff indeed.
