For non-visual observations the Lyrid peak should fall on April 22 sometime between roughly 04h–15h UT, with marginally higher ZHRs likely the closer the maximum happens to ∼ 11h30m UT.

η-Lyrids (ELY)
Active: May 3–14; Maximum: May 8

June Lyrids (JLY)

Also upcoming:

ZHR = 55 (periodically variable, ∼ 40–85);
