Get outside after midnight on the night of April 16th to enjoy the start of the Lyrids Meteor Shower. Look for meteors to radiate outwards from the constellation Lyra at the peak of the shower, after midnight on the 21st into the early hours of April 22nd. The Lyrids are a medium shower, which should produce around 18 meteors per hour this year. Unfortunately this year the moon is 4 days away from full on the night of the peak, which will cut down the number of observable meteors. The Lyrids shower often produces meteors with impressive dust trails that can last several seconds. More information is available at amsmeteors.org
