The world's oldest meteor shower, The Lyrids, is expected to peak on the night of April 21. According to Mental Floss, the first observation of the shower was in China as far back as 690 BCE. The shower is named for its location near the constellation Lyra, specifically surrounding Vega, its brightest star. The Lyrids are the strongest shower of this kind—but they're known to be unpredictable: On average, only 20 shooting stars can be seen per hour during its peak nights. However, there are some cases were more than 100 shooting stars can be seen within one hour but this is rare.
