2022 Lyrid meteor shower peaks April 21/22

EarthSky reports

When to watch: Late evening April 21 – or late evening April 22 – will be best. Before moonrise! The predicted peak** is 4 UTC on April 22. And the peak of the Lyrids is narrow (no weeks-long stretches of meteor-watching, as with some showers). Unfortunately in 2022, there’s a bright moon in the sky on the peak morning. Note that it’s a waning moon. So – on the night after the peak (late evening April 22 to dawn April 23) – there will be less moon, and so you might try that night, too.
