A stop at the middle of the world near Cayambe Ecuador prompts one to look up.

A stop at the middle of the world near Cayambe Ecuador prompts one to look up.

A belt of clouds often shrouds our planet’s equator, though I am always delighted to look up at night and see a Carl Sagan sky!    This weekend, remember to LOOK UP for the annual Lyrid Meteors!  The peak time for seeing the shower will be on April 21/22 – Sunday night/Monday morning.

Although a gentle rain is falling now, I hope to glimpse a few early arrival meteors later tonight.     Sometimes it pays to look up!

See more posts about looking up HERE.

That’s all folks!  Let me know if you catch any meteors!
