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

New England’s night sky is second to none. Rhode Island even has a dedicated place, Frosty Drew Observatory, for all things astronomy. And next month, we’ll be able to see the annual Lyrid Meteor Shower all over North America, including the Ocean State. Head to a nice, rural location and see for yourself.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:

Have you ever seen these spectacular meteors? This is your chance to wish upon hundreds of shooting stars.
