This last week of April will bring a couple of astronomical events that will be worth watching. The first of these will be the Lyrid Meteor Shower. This will happen from April 16 to the 25, with the peak of the shower activity happening from April 22 to the 23. The Lyrids is one of the oldest meteor showers and is named after the constellation Lyra. Look to the east for the bright star Vega to have the best possible viewing during this week.
