This Year, The Lyrids Meteor Shower Above Texas Will Peak On Earth Day In A Celestial Celebration
We honor the Earth every April 22, but this year, Mother Nature is celebrating with a celestial spectacle of epic proportions. The annual Lyrids meteor shower will peak overnight on Earth Day, and you’ll be able to see it with your naked eyes right here in Texas.
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: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate
