Lyrid meteor shower this week
« on: April 20, 2015, 07:38:51 pm »
The Lyrid meteor shower happens from April 16 to 25. But when the most meteors are streaking across the sky, will be a few hours before dawn on Wednesday, April 22 and Thursday, April 23.

If the sky is clear, & you're in a dark location far from city lights, you may see up to 10 to 20 meteors each hour.

These types of meteor showers come from the small bits of comet tails. When Earth passes through a comet's tail, its gravitational pull attracts their debris, which then enters the atmosphere. The comet that produces the Lyrids is called Comet C/1861 G1, which orbits the sun every 415 years.

The constellation that the Lyrid meteors seem to come from is Lyra.

So, when you're watching the shower, you can trace the path of the meteors back to the Lyra constellation. You can easily find this constellation in the sky because it contains one of the brightest stars, Vega.
