How To Watch Tonight's Lyrid Meteor Shower In The Bay Area

April 22, 2019

The Lyrid meteor shower will hit its peak tonight April 22 into April 23.

The latest forecast shows that the night skies should be clear and ideal for viewing.

Generally, the early pre-dawn morning is the best time for viewing but experts are saying this year's shower will be great just before midnight. 

You can see them in the night sky to the northeast near the constellation Lyra the Harp and the star Vega.
