Tonight’s (Thursday Night April 21st, 2022) Lyrid Meteor Shower! It peaks tonight!!


Zachary Veal, Teenager Meteorologist

Well, the skies tonight will be mostly clear through the night, which is great news because the Lyrid Meteor shower peaks tonight! The planet Earth will cross the debris path left behind by Comet Thatcher, so we might be able to view a few “shooting stars”, or meteors, tonight. So, remember to get outside with both your family and your friends, and look up to the northeast sky starting after 11:00 p.m. ET. to view this marvelous sight! Good luck and enjoy!!
