Subscribe to New Jersey 101.5 FM on

Even the most casual stargazers might want to spend a little extra time looking up over the next few nights as the Lyrid meteor shower is expected to be visible through Saturday.

NJ.com spoke to Kevin D. Conod, the manager and astronomer at the Newark Museum’s Dreyfuss Planetarium, who said especially in the more rural areas there could be close to 20 meteors per hour shooting across the sky. Conod said rural areas will have more of a view because of the darker skies, but even brighter areas will likely see a few.

According to Conod the best views will be Saturday morning between midnight and sunrise.
