It’s time for the Lyrid meteor shower again and we’ve got a great place for you to watch them. No need to paddle a canoe into the middle of a lake to view them, just pull a lawn chair out onto the ice for the perfect seat. They will be peaking on the morning of April 22 according to Spaceweather.com.

The annual Lyrid meteor shower is starting! It’s active each year from about April 16 to 25. In 2018, the peak of this shower – which tends to come in a burst and usually lasts for less than a day – is expected to fall on the morning of April 22, with little or no interference from the waxing moon.

No matter where you are on Earth, expect the greatest number of meteors to fall during the few hours before dawn.
