LYRID METEOR SHOWER FROM ATACAMA Taken by Yuri Beletsky on April 21, 2017 @ Atacama, Chile
On the night of Apr, 21/22 we witnessed activity of Lyrid meteors. The radiant is located in constellation Lyra which never rises too high in the Southern Hemisphere, nevertheless I managed to capture some of them. Here is my final result of 5 hours imaging from Las Campanas observatory in Atacama desert in Chile. The Moon and Venus happened to be nicely aligned just above the mountains, and on the foreground you can see famous OGLE telescope.
