Lyrids Meteor Shower

Kwiecień 22, 2021 – Kwiecień 23, 2021 całodniowy Europe/Warsaw Strefa czasowa

A fairly bright moon will interfere with this fairly average shower, so try to catch it in the very early morning after the moon has set. The Lyrids can be counted on for about 20 meteors per hour at its peak. It is produced by dust particles left behind by comet C/1861 G1 Thatcher, which was discovered in 1861. The shower runs annually from April 16-25. It peaks on the night of the night of the 22nd and morning of the 23rd. These meteors can sometimes produce bright dust trails that last for several seconds. Meteors will radiate from the constellation Lyra, but can appear anywhere in the sky.
