If it's the one reported for about 8:00 a.m., then nope. I was sleeping in from being out at Eastman Lake until 2:00 a.m. We saw several Lyrids between about 10 p.m. and 2:00 a.m., but by far the best meteor we saw was a small fireball around 11:00 p.m. that was heading from SSE to NNW that gave us a nice orange burst below Polaris.
