Lyra Explains the Lyrid Meteor Shower by mandydax Lyra Explains the Lyrid Meteor Shower by mandydax
This is a real thing coming up this weekend. I know it's a wall of text, but it's all good info. Sorry Aussies, et al, but this isn't visible from most of the southern hemisphere. :(

Too bad we don't have weatherponies to help keep the skies clear. I can only wish you luck with that.

Wow, it'll be approaching two years this April, and i can still look at this picture and somehow see why I liked Lyra to begin with.

Rereading this a year later, this has brought back so many memories. I'm looking forward to the one happening tonight in a few hours, actually. Me and my buddy are staying up for it. Haha.

It's pretty nice of you to make a comic just to inform others about the meteor shower. And using Lyra because of the constellation, and then making a hands "joke"? That is just genius! I'm sure Twilight herself would be proud of you. Good job!
