Relax With Some Meteor Shower Viewing Tonight

Looking for an escape from the coronavirus crisis? Just look to the heavens.

The Lyrid meteor shower – the first of the Spring – began Sunday night. It will peak tonight through the pre-dawn hours tomorrow with about ten visible each hour.

You should look to the Northeast, there should be a bright star named Vega. The radial point for the meteors is near that star.

A waning moon will help make them even more visible than last year, CNN reports.
