There’s a Lyrid meteor shower this week, and it’s something to look forward to

Because of the pandemic, your daily routine is probably now limited to eating, sleeping, Zoom meetings (if you’re working or studying), surfing the net, working out solo, and other similar mundane activities.

Given that you have nothing particularly important to do tomorrow night, you might as well look up to the skies—the annual Lyrid meteor shower is scheduled to peak on the evening of April 22 up to the early hours of April 23.

According to the Astronomical Diary of the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA), the Lyrid meteor shower “typically generates a dozen meteors per hour under optimal conditions with a brief maximum that lasts for less than a day.”

You can hold a stargazing event for your entire family tomorrow night, but just make sure you do it within the confines of your own home. You wouldn’t want to catch a virus while wishing for safety and good health under the stars, now do you?
