Hi Classy!

smiley - erm

Did you read the entry? There was a list of meteor showers and the date around which the peak of the shower usually occurs...

But in answer to your question:

April 21 will feature the Lyrids with about 15 meteors per hour
and then on May 4 there's the Eta Aquarids with about 20 per hour.

smiley - cheers
