Lyrid Meteor Shower - 04/21/14
Are you a fan of astronomy? I know I am... but it looks like Mother Nature will get in the way for the peak of the Lyrid Meteor Shower this year. Overnight tonight, between midnight and dawn Tuesday morning will be the best time to see up to 20 meteors per hour. But a weak front will pass through keeping viewing conditions poor. The good news? If you really want to spot a few, they will still be visible for a couple of days after the peak period and conditions Tuesday & Wednesday night are perfect. Plus, according to Space.com the Lyrids isn't one of the top showers of the year. The Perseids and the Geminids will produce a better showing.
