Lyrid Meteor shower DirectView camera timelapse

This years Lyrid Meteor Shower put on a pretty good show from my location. At least my Direct View camera
caught a good number of them. 
I've taken all the composite images and combined them into a timelapse video and composite image.  I hope you enjoy them!
 
What is the lyrid meteor shower??
 
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Lyrids are a meteor shower lasting from April 16 to April 26[1] each year. The radiant of the meteor shower is located in the constellation Lyra, peaking at April 22—hence they are also called the Alpha Lyrids or April Lyrids. The source of the meteor shower is particles of dust shed in the cometary tail generated by the periodic Comet C/1861 G1 Thatcher. The Lyrids have been observed for the past 2600 years
