    I went out into the backyard for about an hour 3:30 to 4:30 looking for Lyrids.  I counted 7 meteors.  Hiding in the backyard gets out of the streetlights and Lyra/Vega was almost overhead.  Keller probably wouldn't have been too bad at that time.  Most of the ones I saw were to the south.
    I was trying to motivate, took a look out the window and saw all of the stars and took a bit, but finally got up and went out.  Just like a summer evening.  Scorpius to the south and the teapot.  Summer triangle up.  At least the sky was like a summer evening.  Just a tad cool out.  🙂
