April has 1st heaviest rain of shooting stars and eclipse in 2022

The first most intense shower of shooting stars of the year and visible in Brazil will be that of the Lyrids or Lyrids meteors, at dawn on April 23, a Saturday.

The Lyrid meteor shower takes place annually between the 16th and 25th of April. In 2022, its peak will be in the early hours of the day.

Under ideal conditions, up to 20 meteors can be observed per hour. As the name suggests, meteors depart from the constellation Lyra.

The Lyrids are also capable of producing contrails created by ionized gas that are visible for a few seconds after the meteor passes, according to earthsky.org.

They radiate from close proximity to the bright star Vega in the constellation Lyra the Harp and will be seen with the naked eye.

The April 30, 2022 solar eclipse will be a partial solar eclipse that will be visible over the Southern Ocean, Chile and southwest Argentina.
