The Lyrid Meteor Shower Peaks Wednesday Night
Spacy awesomeness tomorrow night!
The Lyrid Meteor Shower will be at its best Wednesday night. If the sky isn't blanketed with clouds, this could be the best meteor shower on the year. The crescent moon will only be 1/15th the brightness of a full moon, meaning it should be perfectly dark.
You might see 10 to 20 meteors per hour beginning at midnight on April 22, and into the early morning hours of April 23.
The meteors will appear as fireballs streaking across the sky.
