Meteor Activity Outlook for April 23-29, 2022

During this period, the moon reaches its last quarter phase on Saturday April 23rd. On that morning the half-illuminated moon will rise near 3:00 local daylight saving time (LDST) and will interfere with morning meteor observations the remainder of the night. As the week progresses, the moon rises later in the morning and by the end of the week the moon will rise near dawn, allowing dark skies the entire night.

Meteor Activity Outlook for April 16-22, 2022

During this period, the moon reaches its full phase on Saturday April 16th. At that time the moon will lie above the horizon all night long, making meteor viewing difficult at best. As the week progresses a small window of opportunity will open up to watch meteor activity under dark skies between dusk and moon rise. Unfortunately, this time of night produces the lowest meteor activity so activity will be sparse at best.

Meteor Activity Outlook for April 9-15, 2022

During this period, the moon reaches its first quarter phase on Saturday April 9th. The half-illuminated moon will interfere with evening and early morning meteor observations as it doesn't set until 03:00 local daylight saving time (LDST), allowing only a small remainder of the night to be free of interfering moonlight. As the week progresses, the moon sets later and later, interfering all night long by the end of the period.

    During this period, the moon waxes from a thin crescent to nearly half-illuminated. This weekend the thin crescent moon will set shortly after dusk, so no moonlight will interfere during the remainder of the night. Late in the period the evening hours have interfering moonlight, but the more active morning hours are still free from any interference.

    During this period, the moon wanes from nearly full to nearly half-illuminated by the end of the week. This is the worse time of the month to try and observe meteor activity as the bright moon will lie above the horizon most of the night and will obscure all but the brightest meteors.

    During this period, the moon reaches its full phase on Friday March 18th. At that time the moon lies opposite the sun in the sky and lies above the horizon all night long. This weekend the waxing gibbous moon will set during the early morning hours but will not interfere with meteor observing during the more active morning hours, allowing a few hours of dark sky observing prior to dawn.
