LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- A meteor shower lit up the night sky at its peak Sunday night, but it's not over.

The Lyrid meteor shower will continue to be seen until April 25. You can see about 15 to 20 meteors an hour in the eastern sky.

The moon may be a bit bright, so the best way to see them is to drive away from city lights.

Space.com says, "The Lyrid meteor shower occurs each year in mid-April when the Earth passes through a trail of dusty debris from the Comet Thatcher (C/1861 G1), which orbits the sun once every 415 years. Humans have been observing this particular meteor shower for at least 2,600 years."
