Was taking a look at Saturn, looked away for a second or two and saw a yellowish fast-moving meteor streak from just below Arcturus to below Denebola. Can I claim the first Lyrid of the season...? :D

I saw two of them last night, the first was at 10:30 and the other one was at about 11:00. No idea if i missed any while looking down into the eyepiece, though. Oh, and four satellites went cruising through the fov up in UMa.. love it when that happens! :D

During the period 10:45 PM - 11:05 PM EDT I saw four meteors just above the constellation Hercules. They were merely faint flashes. This is the first clear night in Western Pennsylvania since the Lyrid shower began.
