Lyrid Meteor Shower and Big Sun Spot Activity.

LYRID METEOR SHOWER: Earth is entering a stream of dusty debris from Comet Thatcher,
source of the annual Lyrid meteor shower. Forecasters expect the shower to peak on
April 22nd with as many as 20 meteors per hour, although visibility will be reduced
by bright moonlight. The best time to look, no matter where you live, is Friday morning
during the hours before local dawn. Visit http://spaceweather.com for live meteor
counts and more information.

BIG SUNSPOTS: This week the sun is dotted with several large spots, a situation that
will become increasingly common as Solar Cycle 24 intensifies. Our new White Light
Solar Observing System allows you to safely monitor these behemoth sources of solar
activity. Click here for more information:
