Lyrid Meteor this Morning and Northern Lights Yesterday

The skies have been active the last few nights...  Northern Lights on Monday morning and a nice Lyrid meteor on Tuesday.  This is an addition to yesterday's blog.

This meteor capture was within minutes of the clouds covering the sky...  Yes it was a lucky shot for multiple reasons....  The Lyrid meteor shower should be peaking tonight and unfortunately it will be blocked by clouds.  Here is an enhanced image of this morning's meteor.  It was confirmed to by a Lyrid by Robert Lunsford of the American Meteor Society....

I was going to do a quick blog on this Northern Lights show and then Cliff Mass did a WAY better job than I could do....  I'll share an image and time lapse, but the best information is here on Cliff's Blog- Click Here
