LYRID METEOR SHOWER THIS WEEKEND

LYRID METEOR SHOWER THIS WEEKEND

The Lyrid meteor shower peaks this week, with meteors visible through April 25. While the Lyrids are not the strongest meteor shower, some meteors may occasionally reach fireball intensity. The showers emanate from the constellation of Lyra; its principal star, Vega, is the third brightest star in the northern hemisphere. For best viewing, face toward the northern half of the sky with the moon at your back. This will allow you to see the fainter Lyrids, which will be more numerous than the bright ones.
