Surges Of Up To 100 Meteors Per Hour Will Light Up The Wyoming Skies During The 2020 Lyrid Meteor This April
Springtime in Wyoming is sort of a tricky season – it can be chilly and snowy in the mountains, but the warmer weather usually provides a break from a brutal and cold winter. If you’re looking for a way to get out of the house but still avoid crowds, find your favorite spot for stargazing and mark your calendars for the night of April 21-22, 2020. One of the best ways to welcome the season is to plan on watching the Lyrid meteor shower in Wyoming! This April stargazing show is always an incredible sight to see. This year, the New Moon means Wyoming has a front row seat to the show.
