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.
