We all could use a wish or two right about now, and what better way to make sure you catch a shooting star than by watching a meteor shower from your backyard? After all, anything streaking across the night sky from space counts for wishes. The Lyrid Meteor Shower will "light" up the Arizona skies this week. You can catch a spectacular show as these meteors cascade across the inky blue desert night.\nAccording to AZ Family, there will be a great opportunity to catch sight of these meteors on April 21, 2020.\nThe weather in Arizona is on track to have perfect conditions for a clear night, which means an even clearer view of the meteors as they streak across the sky, reported AZ Family.\nThe Lyrid Meteor Shower happens every year around April. The name comes from the constellation Lyra.\nAccording to the Phoenix New Times, you will be able to watch between 10-20 "shooting stars" per hour.\nIf you want to learn more about the meteor shower, you can also live stream a commentary by the Lowell Observatory at 9 p.m. on Tuesday, April 21, 2020.\nThanks to the darker skies and a new moon around the corner, AZ Family says you will be able to catch a much better view of the incredible showers as they pass by.\nYou should be able to see them from most places that aren't overly polluted by light, so your backyard can be the perfect spot to sit back and enjoy the show.\nThe showers will continue until April 26, 2020, but your best chance at some epic galactic action lies over the next couple of days.\nLyrid meteor shower to light up the Arizona sky.
