MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - We haven’t had much to look at thus far in 2021 in the astronomy department. That changes later this month into the first week of May with two meteor showers and a supermoon with a pretty nifty name.The first event is the Lyrid meteor shower, which will peak the night of April 21st into the predawn hours of April 22nd. The Lyrids can be referred to as April’s shooting stars, and is one of the annual meteor showers worth checking out.You can see 10-20 meteors per hour, on average, when peak occurs. The Lyrids have a radiant high in the sky after midnight, so if you venture out closer to dawn on April 22nd all you have to do is look up!
