What’s That in the Sky? Check Out the Lyrid Meteor Shower this Earth Day!

It’s one of our favorite days of the year here at Dreams Resorts & Spas: Earth Day! What better way to celebrate this great holiday than by checking out one of Earth’s greatest wonders: a meteor shower!

The Lyrid Meteor shower occurs every April and tonight promises to offer one of the best views of this annual, dazzling natural wonder!

Sunrise is also an excellent time for viewing!
