Get ready for one of the first good meteor shower of the year. The Lyrids Meteor shower is April 16-25 and produce 10-20 meteors per hour at their peak on April 22-23. Although the shower may favor be best seen in Europe, the Lyrids are visible in most parts of the world.

The Lyrids can appear anywhere in the sky, so you don’t need to look towards the radiant. Your best bet is to look for meteors near the peak of the shower after midnight on April 22 and into the early morning of April 23. You don’t need a telescope or binoculars. Just grab a good chair or blanket, lie back and look up.

Slooh will run a live show on the Lyrids on April 22, 2015 and you can watch the live stream at Slooh.com.

You can also download a number of apps like SkyView, to determine where the meteor shower will be in the night sky.
