LYRID METEORS VS. THE FULL MOON: Earth is passing through a stream of debris from Comet Thatcher, source of the annual Lyrid meteor shower. Unfortunately, the shower's peak coincides with tonight's full Moon. Will we see any Lyrids through the glare? It's possible. NASA cameras have captured a number of Lyrid fireballs over the USA, easy to see in bright moonlight. Visit http://spaceweather.com for more information.
