One of recorded histories oldest meteor shower will be making its annual return to the night sky on Saturday.
The Lyrids meteor shower, fueled by the dust of a passing comet, is known to produce short but vibrant bursts of "fireballs" in the sky, according to NASA. You can catch some of the Lyrids beginning this weekend but the shower's peak will occur from around 6 p.m. through 9pm PST on April 22nd.
For your best chances of seeing these "fireballs", look to the northeast not long after sunset. [More Details]
