Lyrids meteor shower: Night Skies set to fill up with shooting stars as Earth crosses Route of comet

If after a few weeks under lockdown you have drained the books in your library along with the articles on your Netflix queue, then the skies have stepped it to amuse you.

Their meeting will observe the night skies filled with around 20 shooting stars per hour.

The yearly phenomenon is referred to as the Lyrids and can be also, based on NASA, “among the earliest known meteor showers”.

The Lyrids are observed for 2,700 decades and choose their name in the constellation Lyra since they seem to radiate from the Vega, its brightest star.

The meteor shower is best seen from the Northern Hemisphere and demands nothing but a set of eyes to see them.
