Meteor Shower. Lyrids stars are neither abundant nor predictable but are very bright, and that’s what makes this meteor shower so special and wonderful.

The Lyrids are unpredictable because it is difficult to know how many meteors will see, although it is normal to see one every three minutes.

Their origin is Comet Thatcher (C/1861 G1), which approaches the Sun every 415 years.

To observe the meteor shower, you don’t need any astronomical equipment, although it is necessary to find a clear, dark place (away from the pollution of cities) and look at the northeast horizon, where is Lyra.

Enjoy your day, Yareah friends. Art is everywhere and up to you!

Don’t you like stargazing? A meteor shower is so beautiful! But a small lone star too! And how about the sun, our star?

Here, some quotes about these diamonds in the sky:

You must have chaos within you to give birth to a dancing star. Friedrich Nietzsche.

He who exercises government by means of his virtue may be compared to the north polar star, which keeps its place and all the stars turn towards it. Confucius.

Who are we? We find that we live on an insignificant planet of a humdrum star lost in a galaxy tucked away in some forgotten corner of a universe in which there are far more galaxies than people. Carl Sagan.

Christmas in Bethlehem. The ancient dream: a cold, clear night made brilliant by a glorious star, the smell of incense, shepherds and wise men falling to their knees in adoration of the sweet baby, the incarnation of perfect love. Lucinda Franks.

He who is fixed to a star does not change his mind. Leonardo da Vinci.

To us also, through every star, through every blade of grass, is not God made visible if we will open our minds and our eyes. Thomas Carlyle.
