Venus Disappears during Meteor Shower april 22nd

On Wednesday morning, April 22nd, Earth will pass through a stream of comet dust, giving rise to the annual Lyrid meteor shower. At the same time, the crescent Moon and Venus will converge for a close encounter in the eastern sky.

Does anyone have any knowledge/information about Eastern ideological thought on the conjunction of the crescent moon and the morning star?

I enjoy going out and watching the meteor showers. They are the best when it is a moonless night though.

I am going to try to catch this one. I missed it last year and was very disappointed.

Hopefully my dad gives me his telescope!
