We are in luck because as we celebrate Earth Day on Saturday there will be a dazzling display in the night sky known as the Lyrids meteor shower. The Lyrids are known to produce plenty of fireballs and shooting stars.
The last full moon of 2022 will be quite the spectacle not just for its brightness but it has company in the December sky. In a certain part of New York state, you can also see the moon block out one of the planets. It all starts tonight (Wednesday, Dec 7th).
This weekend, you can look up to the night sky and be able to see five planets and the moon without a telescope. You may have to set your alarm to catch it. If you don't catch it, you will have to wait two years for the next time.
