April Meteor Showers

If you are up late tonight, meaning into Sunday morning, you might be able to see a meteor shower. Joe Rao of Space.com reports that a few hours before dawn the Lyrid meteor shower will be at its peak.
In past years ( 1922, 1982 ) as many as 80 to 96 per hour have been seen. Don’t expect those high numbers but with a clear moonless sky, we could get lucky.
