Typically the first good meteor shower of the year, the Lyrids run from April 16-25 and produce some 10-20 meteors per hour at their peak on April 22-23. This will be a good year for the Lyrids because the Moon will be a slender waxing crescent and will not get in the way of seeing these meteors. Although the timing this year may favor observers in Europe, the Lyrids are visible for observers in most parts of the world. Slooh will run a live show on the Lyrids on April 22, 2015.

The Total Lunar Eclipse of April 2015
On April 4, lucky skywatchers can enjoy a total eclipse of the Moon. Visible across the Pacific and parts of North and South America, this is the first of two total lunar eclipses in 2015. Observers in the eastern half of Australia and all of New Zealand and Hawaii can see the entire eclipse. In western North America, the total eclipse will be visible in the pre-dawn sky but the Moon will set before the eclipse ends. Observers in eastern North America and most of South America will see the Moon set before the eclipse reaches totality. Join Slooh's Bob Berman and Will Gater as they discuss and marvel over live feeds of the lunar eclipse live on April 4 from multiple sites across the world.
