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 10 days or so, starting tonight. 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?
