Catch meteor shower in the sky Friday night

Catch meteor shower in the sky Friday night

NASA reports that the Lyrids will "radiate" through the Summer Triangle, which is made up of three bright stars in the eastern sky.

Dang Vu Tuan Son, chairman of the Vietnam Amateur Club of Astronomy, said the best time to view the shower from Vietnam will be in the early hours of Saturday and Sunday.

This shower can produce about 50 meteors per hour and can be seen in close proximity to Mercury and Venus.

"Patient observers will be rewarded with the sight of 18 meteors per hour before dawn from a dark sky location", NASA writes in a news release. According to AccuWeather, the light from the almost full moon makes it hard to spot numerous dimmer meteors, reducing the number of meteors that onlookers can spot.

Does Disabling SMT on a Ryzen 7 CPU Improves its Performance?
Basin Falls is purportedly the codename for Intel's new X299 chipset, and the Skylake-X and Kaby Lake-X chips based on it. COMPUTER CHIP FORERUNNERS AMD and Intel are the tech industry's longest-standing rivals when it comes to semiconductors.

Although predictions place this year's maximum around midday for United Kingdom observers (and therefore favouring North American observers where it is still dark), weekend early risers in rural areas could be in for a treat as the Lyrid shower is known for fireballs and bright meteors leaving glowing trails.

The Lyrids are expected to be active through April 25.

If the weather cooperates, Washingtonians could get a glimpse of the annual Lyrid meteor shower Friday night.
