Hi,

When is a Lyrid not a Lyrid? when you discover you actually caught it on another camera and it doesn’t go through the radiant!

A salutory reminder of the perils of visual observing, even with bright (this was -2/-3) meteors great care must be taken. Looks like this is a rather unique (spectrally) sporadic.

So no Lyrids after all. A total of 43hours 10 mins (times two for two cameras + some CCD time), oh well roll on the Eta Aquarids….

cheers,

Bill.
