I didn’t even know there was a meteor shower this time of year. But lo-and-behold, April 22/23 is the peak of the Lyrid meteor shower.

Even better, it is a perfectly clear night in April. It truly can’t get any more unusual than that. So I hope everyone can get a chance tonight once the light leaves the sky to go out and find some shooting stars.

Should see 10 meteors an hour or so.
