The predicted peak for the 2013 Lyrid meteor shower was before dawn today (April 22), though you might see meteors before dawn tomorrow. Meanwhile, for the past few days, our friends around the world have been out at night – or early in the predawn hours – looking for meteors. Some people have even gotten some great pics and shared them with us! We love your pics! Thanks so much!
