I myself just so happened to be awake at 3:45 am, and I saw the flash of light from outside reflect from my bedroom wall! There were two bright flashes, but I'd assumed it was lightning, so I paid it no mind. It had the exact shade of green as in the video. Pretty cool to realize now what it was!

Will we be able to easily observe the Lyrid shower? According to, "In a dark sky with no moon, you might see 10 to 15 Lyrids per hour. The Lyrids are known for uncommon surges that can sometimes bring rates of up to 100 per hour!"
