I usually forget to tell you when there is going to be a meteor shower such as the Perseids in August or the Geminids in December. By the time I find out when they are going to be visible, it’s too late to write about them in the Star.

So this year, I’m going to tell you early, by pointing you to a page that lists all the best meteor showers you have to look forward to in 2018.

The next shower you should put into your diaries is the Lyrids, which will be active between April 14 and 30. These are the result of the comet Thatcher, which has been scattering debris around its orbital path for at least a million years.

Read about this meteor shower, and the others to look out for this year, here: http://www.sciencealert.com/2018-guide-best-meteor-showers
