The Lyrids

Updated:  I made it in to the Astronomy Picture of the Day Lyrid album.  There are some nice other pictures on there and someone even did the work to verify this as a true Lyrid and even submit additional pictures of this very meteor!

I set up the cameras for the minor Lyrid Meteor Shower on Saturday night.  It was pretty slow, as expected, but I did capture one very nice fireball over the foothills behind my house.

  I also made a short video of the time-lapse pictures I took in order to capture this fireball...
