> LYRID METEOR SHOWER: Earth is entering a stream of dusty debris
from Comet Thatcher, source of the annual Lyrid meteor shower.
Forecasters expect the shower to peak on April 22nd with as many as 20
meteors per hour, although visibility will be reduced by bright
moonlight. The best time to look, no matter where you live, is Friday
morning during the hours before local dawn. Visit

> BIG SUNSPOTS: This week the sun is dotted with several large
spots, a situation that will become increasingly common as Solar Cycle
24 intensifies. Our new White Light Solar Observing System allows
you to safely monitor these behemoth sources of solar activity.
