Lyrid Meteor Shower on April 22-23

For Philippine Observers:

The shower’s peak will be in progress on the late night of April 22 to predawn of April 23 with an average of 10-15 meteors per hour under ideal cloudless sky condition. The observation of the meteors is most favorable after midnight when the constellation Lyra, the showers’ radiant, is already more than 30 degrees above the northeastern horizon.
