Lyrid Meteors - April 2012

An hour of imaging just before dawn on 22nd April recorded 3 Lyrids and a sporadic.

This was the best Lyrid, although it was hardly spectacular.

The radiant is at top centre while Vega is the bright star left of centre near the top.

This sporadic was the best meteor recorded during the session. Although it points near the general area of Lyra it didn't come from that radiant.
