Lyrids Meteor Shower has begun!

The Lyrids meteor shower began on the 16th April and will peak on the evening of the 21/22nd April. As there is a waxing gibbous Moon, it should not be too hard to spot a few meteors and while this is not the most active of meteor showers, you should see around 20 meteors per hour. It is possible that the shower could result in 100 meteors per hour id we are very lucky! Although the Lyrids have a radiant in the constellation of Lyra, they can be seen coming from all over the sky. Best time is between midnight and dawn. Go out, look up and be patient!
