It’s Time For the 2021 Lyrids (video)

 

It is that time of the year, again… it is time to look up and enjoy the 2021 Lyrids meteor shower.

The Lyrids reaches its peak on the night of April 21- 22, with some activity on the nights prior and following.

Lyrids will appear to originate from the constellation Lyra, near Vega. The source of the shower is debris from Comet C/1861 Thatcher.

This shower can produce up to 18 meteors per hour. Light pollution from the moon and from artificial sources can hamper your view. There may be a better chance to see some activity when the moon sets later in the evening.
