Spring is always a glorious time in Nebraska, with everything coming back to life and turning green, the weather warming up, and the Lyrid meteor shower lighting up the sky. It’s a once-a-year phenomenon that we look forward to each spring. This year it seems a little more significant given the fact that many of us have been spending a lot more time at home. This is one family activity that you can do while still practicing responsible social distancing. Next month, find a dark place, lie back on your blanket, and enjoy the magic of one of nature’s most beautiful shows.
