Hello Friends of the Wings of Freedom Museum. I am J.J. Paskill, your local Sky-Guy.

April has a meteor shower called the Lyrids. Late night Tuesday (21st) into the dawn of Wednesday(22nd), the Lyrid meteor shower will be a great chance to see a lot of meteors and possibly fireballs.

Here are a few facts:
Peak is late night on Tuesday the 21st till dawn on Wednesday the 22nd.
Possible amount of meteors you could see is 10-15 per hour.
Best direction to be facing is northeast in the darkest location you can find.
The "shooting stars" you will see are dust particles. The larger they are the more spectacular. Fireballs are meteors slightly larger than the norm, ranging from grains of sand to small pebbles.

This is JJ your Sky-Guy saying, get out and have fun spotting meteorites next week.
Feel free to leave a comment or question below.

NASA SOLAR SYSTEM AMBASSADOR EVENTS WILL BE HAPPENING AT WINGS OF FREEDOM AVIATION MUSEUM with Brian Heck Museum Member and Gift Shop Manager.

Saturday mornings, starting at 11:30am
(Beginning the week the Museum reopens).

Each Saturday will feature a different program.
They will cover the wide variety of topics that NASA studies and explores.
The first three programs are historical in nature, focusing on the early years of manned space flight.

1. Project Mercury's Golden Wings"
Naval/Marine Astronauts 1960-63
Many of America's first Astronauts were Naval Aviators before joining the NASA manned spaceflight programs. Hear their amazing stories while looking at some of the types of aircraft they flew. The talk will focus on four of NASA's Project Mercury Astronauts, Alan Shepard, John Glenn, Scott Carpenter and Wally Schirra.

2. Project Mercury's Silver Wings"
Air Force Astronauts 1960-63
Many of America's first Astronauts were Air Force Aviators before joining the NASA manned spaceflight programs. Hear their amazing stories while looking at some of the types of aircraft they flew. The talk will focus on three of NASA's Project Mercury Astronauts, Gus Grissom, Gordon Cooper and Deke Slayton.

3. Project Mercury's Accomplishments
NASA's first Manned Space-fight Program
Gigantic technical challenges and enormous political pressures drive a program from halting failures to historic success. The story of Project Mercury is much more than men riding rockets into space or an off-shoot of the Cold War. It was a solid foundation for future dreams.
These talks will be conducted by a newly inducted Solar System Ambassador, Brian Heck.
He has been a volunteer at the Wings of Freedom Aviation Museum for several years.
His Solar System Ambassador website address is: https://solarsystem.nasa.gov/ambassadors/2066/

Going through old photos of my grandfather's from the mid twenties. He was in the Army Air Corp and was an observer and later graduated from MIT and worked at Lockheed as an engineer. I have a load of photos of aircraft and of airfields in NJ and possibly at the old Pitcairn airfield. Some of the photos even have last names written on the back. I'm hoping to scan these and if the museum is interested, I can send these scans to you.
