This Year, The Lyrids Meteor Shower Above South Carolina Will Peak On Earth Day In A Celestial Celebration

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.

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:

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!
