The· Lyrids meteor shower According to NASA, there are usually about 12 meteors per hour, which can surprise Sky-Watcher.
At peak times, 10 to 20 meteors per hour are typical. However, on rare occasions, showers are known to reach up to 100 per hour, NASA said on its website.
From the Lyrids meteor shower, it’s not just the frequency of meteors that SkyWatchers have to look forward to.
“Lyrids often leave behind a row of glowing dust as they pass through the Earth’s atmosphere,” NASA said. “These trains can be observed for a few seconds.”
According to EarthSky, the best time to see a shower is “from midnight to dawn” anywhere on Earth. Space.com reports that the moonlight can obscure the Lyrids meteor shower.
“In 2021, the moon will be renewed on April 12,” Earth Sky reported. “That is, in a week or so, the Lyrids meteor shower will be at its best. The best visibility can come between the moonset and dawn.”
