Lyrid Meteor Shower Will Light Up Montana Skies on Tuesday Night
The Lyrid Meteor Showers will be visible late at night on Tuesday, April 21.
Since there is a new moon, the sky will be darker than usual. That means we should get a good show with up to 15 shooting stars an hour. The best time to watch is between midnight and dawn when conditions are darkest.
For best viewing, the sky needs to be dark. It's best to get out of city limits. Look for a location with a wide-open view of the sky, free from obstructions like tall trees or buildings. Spend about 20 minutes outside for your eyes to fully adjust to the darkness of the night sky.
