Meteor shows starts Thursday night

Posted: Updated:

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Clouds Thursday might make it a little difficult, but if you're lucky you might see something special in the sky.

The Lyrids meteor shower is going on right now. It should peak Friday. If you're away from city lights, you may be able to see about ten shooting stars every hour.

An expert at Thronateeska's Weatherbee Planetarium explains how meteor showers occur.

You can see the meteors in the northeast sky. The shower should peak Friday between 10:00 p.m. and midnight.
