So you want to do something different with the kids.
One overlooked source of entertainment is free.
My favorite, I like free.
Grab a blanket, a pillow, bug spray, and some warm clothes. The month of April is loaded with opportunities for star viewing.
The Lyrid meteor will be waiting for you but you better hurry, good things don’t last forever.
Just before dawn on April 21, 2009, Earth with glide through Comet Thatcher’s tail. Flakes of comet dust will hit the earth’s atmosphere and disintegrate as streaks of light-meteors!
My grandchildren love this opportunity. I set the alarm clock then wake them to “camp out” for the show.
What better way to celebrate Earth Day!
