Here's the section on the Lyrids from the April 2021 Celestial Calendar.
The Lyrid meteor shower peaks on the night of April 22nd/April 23rd. A typical zenithal hourly rate is about 20 meteors per hour but short outbursts have occurred occasionally. Fireballs are also possible. The radiant lies to the northwest of the first-magnitude star Vega, between the Keystone of Hercules and Lyra. A waxing gibbous Moon will compromise the 2021 Lyrids. It will set about an hour before morning twilight. For more on this year’s Lyrid meteor shower, browse https://earthsky.org...d-meteor-shower and https://www.imo.net/...lyrids-in-2021/
