Bright sporadic meteor and spectrum.

Hi,

The Lyrids seemed to be relatively low activity with me this year. Didn't have ideal conditions but did manage to several hours of video and dslr ops over 19/20 and 21/22 Apr.

Only recorded a handful of Lyrids on video with one good spectrum.

The most interesting spectrum was a sporadic with a slow velocity.

A very bright sodium line and trail.

Strong iron emissions too.

Cheers,

Bill.

Bill,

Bill,

Spectra of these objects are difficult to capture, but interesting to see what they contain.

Good work.

Regards,

Jack
