Just outside of West Dundee IL, my girlfriend and I are having a fire on our deck and about three minutes ago we both saw a white light streak across the sky and split into two bright pieces. That was the most intense "shooting star" I've ever seen in person...

Anyone else catch it?

I didn't catch it, but aren't we supposed to be getting a meteor shower coming up for a few days? I thought I read something about it....I'll have to look again.


ETA: Found it.

The radiant for this shower is near the bright star Vega in the constellation Lyra (chart here), which rises in the northeast at about 10 p.m. on April evenings. In 2014, the peak morning is April 22, but you might also see meteors before and after that date.


The next big one is May 5th

Link if interested

Yeah, i had heard it peaked days ago. Good link.

I did watch the nights they mentioned, and saw regular but numerous shooting stars but nothing at all like this one.

I bet it was a sight, too bad they happen so fast you rarely get to photograph them. At least you got to share it with someone close to you.
