Rain in the Montana Rockies for tonight’s Lyrids, so I headed out last night instead. Saw one meteor during four hours of watching, but it was worthwhile sitting on the shore for a calm and beautiful night over Lake McDonald in Glacier National Park.
By the way … the light at right is car headlights. At left is light pollution from Lake McDonald Lodge.

Thank you, John! Beautiful.
