The Lyrid meteors come around again.
The expected peak of this sometimes rich shower is in the middle of April 22 (about 12h Universal Time), which favors the Pacific side of Earth, but Lyrids should be seen on the nights before and after,
The radiant – the small area from which the meteors seem to near and far parts of the sky, and from which they take their name – rises in the northeast and is highest by 4 AM.
After clouds and light pollution, the chief obscurer of fainter meteors is the Moon. It was at Last Quarter on April 19, and so does not rise till around 2 AM.
