Lyrid meteor shower peaks tonight

Its usually a minor shower with a very broad peak that extends from about April 16-26. Tomorrow morning is the theoretical peak with rates that average about 10-20 per hour. The Geminids and Perseids can have rates of up to 100 per hour. As usual the best time to see them will be after midnight. They will appear to come from the direction of Lyra which will be almost directly overhead. Check here for more details.
