Lyrids meteor shower visible from tomorrow

Just a reminder that the Lyrids meteor shower will be visible from tomorrow, 16 April. It’s not a spectacular shower but still usually produces some 20 meteors an hour at peak, and this year benefits from a quarter moon that will be setting just after midnight. The shower lasts until the 25th, but peaks next weekend, overnight Sunday 22- Monday 23. Lyrid meteors can appear anywhere in the sky from after midnight.
