April 9 – New Moon
The Moon will be on the same side of Earth as the Sun and will not be visible in the night sky. This phase occurred at 01:22 (Vietnam time). This is the best time of the month to observe faint objects such as galaxies and star clusters, as there is no moonlight to obstruct them.
April 22 and 23 – Lyrid meteor shower
The Lyrid meteor shower typically produces around 20 meteors per hour at its peak. It is produced by dust particles left behind by comet C/1861 G1 Thatcher, discovered in 1861. The meteor shower occurs every year from April 16 to 25. This year, the peak falls at night from 10 p.m. to 11 p.m. These meteors can sometimes produce bright particles. trails of dust that last several seconds. But unfortunately, Tang Tron’s glow will obscure all but the brightest meteors of the night. But if you are patient, you can always observe them with the naked eye. The best time would be after midnight. Meteorites will radiate from the constellation Lyra (Thien Cam) and can appear anywhere in the sky.
April 24 – Full Moon
The Moon will be on the side of the Earth opposite the Sun and its face will be entirely illuminated. This phase occurred at 06:50 (Vietnam time). This full moon was called the Pink Moon by early Native American tribes because it marked the appearance of moss pink phlox, or wasteland phlox, one of the first flowers of spring. This moon is also known as the Grass Moon. Many coastal tribes called it the Fish Moon because it was the time when Shad fish swam upstream to breed.
