Duration of shower: April 15 to April 29.

Expected meteors at peak, under ideal conditions: In a dark sky with no moon, you might see 10 to 15 Lyrids per hour.

Note: The Lyrids are known for uncommon surges that can sometimes bring rates of up to 100 per hour!

About a quarter of Lyrid meteors leave persistent trains.

A meteor train is an ionized gas trail that glows for a few seconds after the meteor has passed.

Lyrid meteors radiate from near the bright star Vega in the constellation Lyra the Harp.

You don’t need to identify Vega or Lyra in order to watch the Lyrid meteor shower.

But you do need to know when the radiant rises, in this case in the northeast before midnight.

That’s why the Lyrids are typically best between midnight and dawn, and why the last quarter moon will interfere with the shower in 2022.

You’ll see the most meteors after the radiant has come over the horizon.

The meteors radiate from there, but will appear unexpectedly, in any and all parts of the sky
