Motivational Quote of the Day:

“The more clearly we can focus our attention on the wonders and realities of the universe about us, the less taste we shall have for destruction.” ~ Rachel Carson

 

“Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better, it’s not.” Dr. Seuss, The Lorax

 

 

Seeing a shooting star streak across the night sky can be a thing of beauty, and stargazers will have their chance to catch a few on Earth Day (April 22) during the first major meteor shower in months. The Lyrids will end the long meteor shower drought that began in early January after the peak of the Quadrantids on Jan. 4, 2019. Up to 20 meteors per hour will grace the night sky on the peak night of the Lyrids, which is expected on Monday night into the early hours of Tuesday morning. Clear conditions across the Deep South and Southwest will provide stargazers with nearly ideal weather. Source: www.accuweather.com
