Default Lyrid Meteor shower

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.

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!
