I thought I would post this as a reminder for the skywatchers like myself. I enjoy watching the meteor showers and am excited for this one as always.

Lyrid Meteor Shower


LYRID METEOR SHOWER: Earth is approaching the debris field of ancient Comet Thatcher, source of the annual Lyrid meteor shower. Forecasters expect the shower to peak on April 21-22; a nearly-new moon on those dates will provide perfect dark-sky conditions for meteor watching. Usually the shower is mild (10-20 meteors per hour) but unmapped filaments of dust in the comet's tail sometimes trigger outbursts 10 times stronger.

Thank you for posting this info.

I have seen a few small meteor's sailing by the last couple of nights and was hoping they might be a prelude to a larger event. In fact it was on my to do list "check for meteor shower's." It's true
