Last but not least, there are 3 really cool celestial events you need to write on your calendar!!!

April 8th – Mars is in opposition – which means it’s the closest to Earth. You may actually be able to see the polar ice caps through a reasonable telescope.

April 15th – Full Moon – lovely in its own right but & accompanied this month by a total lunar eclipse starting around 1 a.m. in Northern Michigan. The result is a phenomenon known as the Pink Moon.

April 22 – Lyrids meteor shower peak

Don’t worry, you don’t have to celebrate everything, just pick you favorites & go find your party hat!

Me…I’m off to practice for Karaoke Week!!!

Talking 'bout my g-g-generation!
