Apr 19/20 Meteors

Lyrid rates continue to crawl higher. If we use last year as a guide, tonight will see a few more Lyrids before the majority of the activity kicks in on Wednesday morning. According to the Live ZHR chart at the IMO, visual observers are seeing 2-4 Lyrids per hour from dark sites.
