Lyrid Meteor Shower Peaks Tonight
As I’ve previously mentioned, I’m a space nerd. I love anything having to do with celestial phenomena!
In past years the Lyrid meteor shower has produced an average of 10-20 meteors per hour, but the waning gibbous moon tonight could wash out visibility.
NASA experts say the best viewing times will be from midnight until dawn on the morning of April 22.
NASA will also be streaming the Lyrid meteor shower live from Huntsville, Alabama starting at approximately 8:30 p.m. EDT, weather permitting.
