Everything about The Lyrid meteor shower in April

The Lyrid meteor shower is a medium-strength shower that occurs between April 16-25 every year.

The Lyrids will next peak on the night of April 22, 2024, displaying a maximum of about 18 meteors per hour in a clear sky.

Unfortunately viewing conditions for the next Lyrid meteor shower will be hindered by the almost full moon shining brightly in Virgo around the time of the Lyrid's peak

But that's not to say it's impossible to catch sight of an impressive meteor or two! The radiant will be between the constellations Lyra and Hercules.

The bright star Vega is part of Lyra, so you can also look for it to get a good idea of where the radiant for the Lyrids will be.

Viewers should have a good view of the meteor shower for the three days around the shower's peak.
