Budding astronauts or keen stargazers, pay attention! The Lyrids, thought to be the oldest known meteor showers, will light up the sky in April for a stunning night's show.
NASA say that the Lyrid Meteor Showers are caused by pieces of debris from the periodic Comet C/1861 G1 Thatcher.
In April every year the Earth runs into the debris, which burn up in the Earth's atmosphere, causing the meteor shower.
This year, the meteor shower is active from around April 16 to 25, where it reaches its peak on April 22 and 23.
How to see the Lyrid Meteor Shower
It's best to go out and see them late, after midnight is better.
During the meteor shower, dozens of shooting stars can be seen per minute, but it's best to try and spot them when there's less light - so the full moon on April 21 may be too light to see.
It's best to look nearer April 16 or 17, in a dark place away from town or city lights.
