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!
