The Lyrids are expected to peak on the evening of 2011 April 22 (ZHR ~20). The radiant of this shower, between Lyra and Hercules, rises during the night. Watches can be usefully carried out from about 22h30m local time onwards from mid-northern sites, but only from well after midnight from the mid-southern hemisphere. Visual observations can be reported through the Report Form and are highly appreciated. The observations are automatically included in an automated ZHR graph.
