    Meteor Shower

    Go look outside, if it's not too late. They're predicting 100-200 meteors an hour, rather than the typical 10-20.

    Stupid city lights usually obscure any view of the sky for me. Plus it is a foggy night.

    If it's not a comet, I'm not watching it. I signed a pact when I was fourteen to never see any celestial object other than a comet. I have to avert my eyes every time the sun or moon is out. Doesn't leave me much time for seeing...:grin:

    I SAW ONE!

    I went outside to watch for any (Kudos to Bort for reminding me) and after a minute or two I really saw one! Then, my ears froze off. It is really, really cold out there.

    Cool, but I assume not everyone can see them, right?

    Yeah, I think I'm too far west to see them. Even if I wasn't though, the city lights would probably make it near impossible anyways.


    Too bad...

    yeah =/

    I dont even know what they look like, are they just random "sparks" of light dashing down the sky, or are they just tiny little lights off in the distance that move very very slowly?..

    Having never seen a meteor shower myself I had to rely on Google...

    This Is a picture from the 2001 Leonids meteor shower. It supposed to look like "random sparks of light dashing down the sky", or shooting stars




    The picture is supposed to be Hi Resolution. So it may or may not take a minute to load

    Wow that looks really awesome.

    With the weird perspective it looks like the ones over on the left are coming right at you O_O

    I'm afraid I'm on the wrong side of the planet.

    You know, to most, that would sound strange.

    I'm on the side that faces the Great Turtle, obviously.

    They're very fast, thin streaks of light.

    I can't believe you've never seen a meteor before. :shocked:
