ELI ON EARTH: Lyrids in East Lansing

This week is the best time for viewing the Lyrid meteor showers in East Lansing. The early mornings of April 22 and 23 (Wednesday – Thursday) will be the best time for viewing. No one knows how frequent the meteors will be from year to year. For the last two years, the light of the moon has made viewing difficult, but this year the moon will not be up during the early morning hours of prime viewing so it should not interfere. If there are clear skies, East Lansing can hope for good meteor viewing.
