Lyrid Meteor Shower
Lyrid Meteor Shower

This annual meteor shower takes place from about April 17 -25, peaking on April 22nd-23rd. During peak, you can expect about 20 meteors an hour. Lyrids are caused by the dust from Comet Thatcher. and named after the constellation Lyra

Observing tips:

Starting the evening of April 22nd, go outside, away from artificial light, and look northeast; at midnight you will look due east and at 5:00 am, you will look southeast. Get comfy and enjoy. The comets will pass near Vega, which is the brightest star in this part of the sky that night. Note the moon will be three-quarters full and will set around 1:00 am, making the viewing even better.
