Something nice and beautiful to focus on amidst all the bad news...
Tonight is the peak night for viewing the Lyrid Meteor shower. EarthSky has a pretty complete rundown of this annual event. Best viewing should be after moon set, which for my area (the ADK's is around 3:30 in the morning.
Look to the northeast near the (duh...) constellation Lyra.
Tonight's show could easily produce 20 meteors per hour, but there could be bursts of up to 100. But that is pretty rare.
This link above also provides some general meteor shower viewing tips and a list of future showers.
