The Lyrids meteor shower has been an annual spectacle since 687 BC, according to NASA and news sites, April 22, 2011. The meteor spectacle could be visible to anyone all over the world on April 22 and 23, 2011.

The Lyrids stream can be best viewed after midnight up to dawn, where you can see “shooting stars,” that can be a huge display of shooting stars  or just one or two within a few minutes.

Skywatchers may not have a clear view of the Lyrids shower however because the moon may obscure the display of fireballs.

Skywatchers are still ready to watch though, and are preparing their paraphernalia for the annual Lyrids meteor shower this April 2011.
