Descripción del evento

The second sighting can be enjoyed from 22 to 23 April with the so-called Lyrid stars. This year, the peak of activity of the Lyrids will coincide with the new Moon, so that in rural areas away from light pollution, up to 20 meteors per hour can be observed. Lyrids are fragments of comet C/1861 G1 (Thatcher) orbiting the sun once every 415 years. Once a year, the Earth passes through a ring full of fragments left by Comet Thatcher, it is one of the oldest known meteor showers, as they have been observed for more than 2,700 years.
