Meteor showers in the Canaries in 2015

Update 19 April: The second meteor shower of 2015, the Lyrids, will be visible this Tuesday and Wednesday, 21-22 and 22-23 April. There’s a chart HERE of where best to look out for them. Astronomers say that the best time will be shortly before dawn, especially on the night of the 22-23rd, but any time after 10pm on either night should be rewarding. Apparently they’re expecting this year to be a bumper one for the Lyrids.

Original post 5 January: The first meteor shower of 2015 was the Quadrantids, which hardly provided any show a couple of nights ago since the peak only lasted a few hours, and there was an almost full moon which didn’t set until just before dawn. With this year’s Quadrantids not giving the best show, below is a full list of this year’s other meteor showers. The next is the Lyrids in April:

January 3-4 Quadrantids
April 21-22 Lyrids
May 5-6 Eta Aquarids
July 27-28 Delta Aquarids
August 11-12 Perseids
October 8 Draconids
October 21-22 Orionids
November 4-5 South Taurids
November 12-13 North Taurids
November 17-18 Leonids
December 13-14 Geminids
