Lyrids Meteor Shower on April 22nd and 23rd.

The Lyrids is an average shower, usually producing about 20 meteors per hour at its peak. It is produced by dust particles left behind by comet C/1861 G1 Thatcher, which was discovered in 1861. The shower runs annually from April 16-25. It peaks this year on the night of the night of the 22nd and morning of the 23rd. These meteors can sometimes produce bright dust trails that last for several seconds. The first quarter moon will set shortly after midnight, leaving dark skies for the what could be a good show. Best viewing will be from a dark location after midnight. Meteors will radiate from the constellation Lyra, but can appear anywhere in the sky.

How to observe the night sky with a device.

Nowadays there are many interesting ways to find star constellations.
I still recommend getting an old fashioned planisphere but if not, these apps for your device may be useful:

Star walk 2
Sky observer
Celestia
Stellarium

all of these apps will help you when you are out on a night that happens to be clear.
