Lyrid meteors can appear anywhere in the sky. If you can trace a meteor’s track back to an apparent point of origin near Vega in Lyra, you’ll know you’ve spotted a Lyrid. Image copyright ©2013, Sky & Telescope.

The annual Lyrid meteor shower peaks tonight into tomorrow morning. The radiant for this moderate meteor shower is in the constellation Lyra the Harp which rises around 10pm. Your best views will be after midnight as Lyra climbs higher in the sky.
