Lyrids Meteor Shower

Lyrids is one of the most prominent meteor showers, which is active in the mid-April every year.

Although meteors will appear in all directions of the sky the Lyrids meteors will look like they are coming from the direction of constellation Lyra. This year the meteor shower will be active for approximately 10 days starting from 15th April 2021. The peak of the meteor shower will be on 22nd 23rd. With a clear sky one will be able to view around a meteor per 4 minutes.

But since the full moon (Poya day) is on 27th, all the meteors will not be visible with bright moon light, only the brightest meteors will be visible to the naked eye.
