Surges Of Up To 100 Meteors Per Hour Will Light Up The Maine Skies During The 2020 Lyrid Meteor This April

In a state like Maine there are plenty of places to go and be alone. That’s because we have so many wonderful rural towns with nature just about everywhere. While peace and quiet is a great benefit, one of the other benefits is low light pollution. This means plenty of star gazing opportunities! Conditions get even better when the moon is dark. That’s why this year’s Lyrid meteor shower is shaping up to be a must-see!

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
