Get your wish list ready. One of the strongest meteor showers of the year is coming up later this month and you’ll want to take advantage of the “make a wish on a shooting star” rule of thumb.

Mark you calendar twice: once with the dates of the full series (April 16-26) and once with the peak night: April 22nd.

Do you love setting aside some special time and changing your normal routine to include going outside in the middle of the night for celestial events like meteor showers? When was the last time you saw a shooting star? Sound off in the comments!
