Streaming | Lyrids Meteor Shower 2021 - April 21 at 9pm Pacific from Lowell Observatory

Every year in late April, the Earth passes through the debris left by Comet Thatcher, and this creates the Lyrid meteor shower. Join Lowell Observatory at 9 pm AZ/PT on Wednesday, April 21, 2021, for a live stream of the Lyrids, hosted by Research Assistant Megan Gialluca. We’ll use the All-Sky Camera at the Lowell Discovery Telescope to hunt for meteors together. After that, you’ll be ready to find more on your own, when the Lyrid meteor shower peaks in the hours before dawn.
Dates:

Virtual Class: Gardening 101

Love the idea of growing your own fruits and veggies to eat and preserve, but don’t know how to get started? A green thumb and acres of land aren’t necessary to make that experience a reality. Patio pots and hanging baskets, raised beds, or in-ground gardens can all bring you a bountiful harvest, it just takes a little planning. Join RIT professor Sandi Connelly to discuss the space you have available to garden in, how you can maximize that space, and how the results can put canned goods on your shelves for the winter.
