Every April, we get to witness a spectacular light show in the night sky.

The Lyrid Meteor Shower is generally active between April 16-25 every year. It usually peaks around April 22 or 23.

For the position of the Lyrids radiant each night, timeanddate.com has an interactive meteor shower sky map you can check out.

The show should be at it's best tonight as long as we're able to see the sky without any obstructions. There will be an estimated eighteen meteors per hour. Another factor that may create an issue with viewing the show is the light on the moon.
