Surges Of Up To 100 Meteors Per Hour Will Light Up The Vermont Skies During The 2020 Lyrid Meteor This April
There are not many things more spectacular than looking up at night at a dark sky and watching meteors race across the heavens. The wonder and awe of how such small space debris could produce this spectacle is one of the most fascinating aspects of meteor showers. For a chance to view these glowing meteoroids entering the earth’s atmosphere, turn your gaze upward from April 16th to April 25th. Vermont is an excellent place to watch the Lyrid Meteor Shower this April due to the relatively little light pollution Vermont has.
