PAGASA noted that the best time to observe the Lyrid Meteor Shower is “shortly before dawn, when up to 18 Meteors per hour can be observed.” For the Pi-Puppids Shower, it can be observed after sunset until around 10:11 PM and the best time to see it is around 8 PM on April 23.

Though you won’t need a telescope to watch the meteor showers, PAGASA recommends that you choose a spot that is far from city lights and under clear, moonless skies.
