Shooting stars set to light up UK skies

As per the Royal Observatory Greenwich, the annual Lyrid meteor shower officially started up Thursday last week and will remain active for about 10 days, with the peak viewing night coming late Tuesday into Wednesday morning. The Lyrids are bits of rock and dust left behind by the comet C/1861 G. Each year around this time, Earth drifts through a cloud of debris from an earlier visit by the comet.
