If you look at the sky 🌌 to watch a meteor shower, you’ll notice that from your terrestrial point of view, those meteors appear to come from a specific location in the night sky 🙂
That celestial point in the night sky from where the paths of meteors appear to originate is the radiant of that meteor shower.
Lyrids are called this way, because their radiant sits on the constellation of Lyra. Vega is the brightest of Lyra’s stars.
If you watch Lyrids meteor shower until April 26th and you can identify in the night sky the point from where the meteors’ path seem to come from then you have just located the constellation of Lyra as well 🙂💫
