Lyrid Meteor Shower Peaks Tonight

An eye-catching end to Earth Day…….Yup, a promising Meteor Show is going to hit its peak tonight. The annual Lyrid Meteor Shower predicted by NASA will offer an impressive sky show to observers with clear weather, in the absence of moon.

On talking about this, Bill Cooke, the Meteor Shower Expert of NASA told SPACE.com that the moon is currently in its new phase, when the side facing Earth is not illuminated by the sun. It means that unlike last year, when bright moonlight washed out April’s annual “shooting stars” display, the 2012 Lyrid meteor shower could be a stand-out event, he continued.

Cooke said that the Lyrids are really unpredictable and he is expecting 15 to 20 Lyrid Meteors an hour.
