Images from the Lyrid meteor shower of Apr. 21-22, 2014.

The camera is mounted in a weather proof box on the roof of Ladd Observatory at Brown University in Providence, RI. For each image north is at right, west at bottom, and the zenith is near the center. The field of view is about 140 by 90 degrees. The camera uses a red / near infrared filter to reduce the brightness of the city lights. Each exposure is 10 seconds.

Live images from the camera are available at our Sky Camera page from dusk until dawn each night. The images update every 5 minutes.
