Where And When You Can Witness the Lyrids Meteor Shower

The Lyrid meteor shower is created due to the leftover of comet G1 Thatcher which orbits around the sun ever 415.5 years in its extremely long and elliptic orbit. Lyrids meteor shower, an annual meteor shower will dazzle the skywatchers and onlookers with its stunning meteor shower this entire week.

Get ready for yet another stunning meteor show starting April 16 through April 25. But you'll have multiple chances to see it before then, as the shower starts as early as tomorrow evening on April 16, 2018, and lasts until April 25, 2018.

Usually, the fall out counts up to 10 to 20 meteor per hour but sometime the count may exceed more than 100 per hour that is virtually known as an outburst. But this particular meteor shower tends to be unpredictable. Its peak will occur on the night of May 5 and last until May 6.

"Despite the Lyrids' relatively low numbers, this shower can often produce bright, fast meteors, and about 15 percent leave behind persistent smoky trains that one can watch with binoculars for many minutes after the meteor itself has disintegrated", shows Altoona Mirror. That's why they happen around the same time every year and appear to originate from specific points in the sky.

Luckily, the moon will not interfere with the 2018 Lyrid meteor shower, NASA meteor expert Bill Cooke told Space.com.

The moon will be a quarter moon on Sunday, not bright enough to cause too much trouble. The Lyrids meteor shower that took place in 1803 in Virginia, 1922 in Greece, 1945 in Japan and finally 1982 in the USA recorded the outbursts or heavy shower of meteors. Keep in mind to allow your eyes about 30 minutes to adjust to the dark, The Indy Channel advises, and enjoy the magnificent show. Observers there said the Lyrids were "falling like rain".

Lightning RW Ryan Callahan left the game late in the second period with an upper body injury and did not return. He skated with the second power-play unit during Monday's morning skate.

"Any meteors visible the sky will likely appear unexpectedly, in any and all parts of the sky", clarifies the media outlet.

The known ever oldest Lyrids meteor shower can be witnessed annually but the cosmetic event can be witnessed for more than a week this year.

Nevertheless, you can still gauge the best time to watch the Lyrid meteor shower on your sky by knowing the rising time of the radiant point.

The Lyrids are caused by the interaction of the Earth's atmosphere with the dust trail left by the Comet C/1861 G1 Thatcher. Some years, the Lyrid meteor shower intensifies and can produce up to 100 meteors per hour in what's called an "outburst", but it is hard to predict exactly when that will happen.

When and how to watch Lyrids meteor showers?

The next one, called Eta Aquarids meteor shower, is set to begin on April 19 and will last until May 28.
