We could all do with a bit of sparkle in our lives right now.
And what better way to get it than from a real-life meteor shower? (Featured image: Islam Hassan, Flickr)
The April Lyrids will be visible for the next few days or so, starting just last week. The meteor shower is expected to hit its zenith between April 22-25, but you should be able to catch it any night this week if you head out on a clear evening.
Viewers can expect to see five to 20 meteors per hour, and you’ll spot them if you look out to the north-east just after midnight or just before dawn. Let’s hope the clouds can give us at least one night off, eh?
