I'm sure you've captured  Lyrid meteor at about 1:40, correct me if I'm wrong. I managed to see 3 of them between 10:15 and 11:20 pm. One for a split second was travelling the other two appeared as bright white flashes. Daughter and I doing a meteor watch tonight.

I think it was just a plane but did capture a meteor possibly a Lyrid on a timelapse, 3 years ago

Caught a brilliant meteor back in November 2014

This was seen from Northern Ireland

A "fireball as bright as the moon" is spotted moving across the sky above Northern Ireland, according to the Irish Astronomical Association.

Theres a good view of Mercury and Venus close together tonight right now. They'll be even closer tomorrow night.

Mercury reaches its greatest elongation on the 30th as Venus quickly races lower in the sky.

I've waited a bit to see this and as would be typical despite the sunniest spring on record it has actually been cloudy the last two nights to the north-west so I've missed it so far!
