If you’re looking for an easy hobby that’s sure to help you make memories with friends and family, why not take up stargazing? Being able to spot constellations, galaxies, and stars is always a fun way to start a conversation. If you don’t know where to start when it comes to understanding the heavenly bodies, make it a point to catch as many meteor showers as you can in the new year. Luckily, early January kicks off the decade with a light show that’s easy to spot against the dark Iowa skies.
