Check Out The Lyrid Meteor Shower!

We missed the total lunar eclipse the other night but for the next week and a half we’ll have the opportunity to see the Lyrid Meteor Shower (pronounced LIE-RID)


This meteor shower can be seen annually, usually from April 16th to April 25th. Peak activity for the shower is expected to be anywhere from 10 to 20 meteors per hour. We do have a bright moon out there so they may be a little harder to see, but definitely worth a look during the late evening hours! So look up and to the northeast if we have a clear night in the next 9 days, you may see some April shooting stars!

The peak for this year’s meteor shower is expected to fall on April 22nd!
