Any one get any good shots of these? I went out for a few hours on 2 nights but the moon really blocked anything out for me, plus city lights didn't help even though I drove a good 20 or so miles out of town.

Yeesh, I didn't even know about it or I would have tried. When did it happen?

For non-visual observations the Lyrid peak should fall on April 22 sometime between roughly 04h–15h UT, with marginally higher ZHRs likely the closer the maximum happens to ∼ 11h30m UT.

η-Lyrids (ELY)
Active: May 3–14; Maximum: May 8

June Lyrids (JLY)
Active: June 11–21; Maximum: June 16

Also upcoming:

η-Aquariids (ETA)
Active: April 19–May 28; Maximum: May 6, 01h UT (λ⊙ = 45 .◦5);
ZHR = 55 (periodically variable, ∼ 40–85);

Why do I always miss some amazing shots. I totally forgot about the shower because we were meant to drive to my parents for my birthday. Ahhh! I hope you all had some good shots and would love to see if anyone was up to sharing!

I missed it but it was because of the weather. We had storms that night. UGH and I was all ready for it too! Figures. LOL

There is another shower going on tonight and next couple of days. Get your cameras out and try to get some shoots.

I'm going to try Tommy! I was reading about it yesterday so will see if I can get anything this time!

Sure is. Didn't happen to have much luck so far myself, but may try again Monday night, early Tuesday morning timeframe.

No luck for me this morning! It is really foggy out there. Weather reports say after today it is supposed to be a lot better. Hoping so!
