Technically, this year's Lyrid Meteor Shower started earlier this week (Monday, April 16), but it doesn't peak until late Saturday, April 21 into wicked early Sunday, April 22. So don't be bummed if you haven't had a chance to catch any of it yet!

To see the celestial event, just head out to an area that doesn't have too much light pollution after midnight and face East. According to NASA, you might be able to see about 10 to 20 meteors per hour, since the SouthCoast is on track for the best visibility!

Maybe it's fate that we watch these little particles seem to fall to the planet as Sunday, April 22 is also Earth Day!
