Lyrid meteor shower, super pink moon and other astronomy events happening in April 2021
There’s a lot happening in the skies in April! Here’s a preview from AccuWeather[1] at some astronomical events to look forward to in the coming weeks:A mysterious pyramid of light will be visible in early April after sunset. It’s called the zodiacal light, and it’s caused by interplanetary dust particles reflecting light from the sun.

Shooting stars will return April 21-22 for the peak of the Lyrid meteor shower, the first since early January. This year, you can expect to see 15-20 meteors per hour.Later in the month, look for the first of the year’s three supermoons to rise on April 26. April’s full moon is knowing as the pink moon, so this one will be a super pink moon.
