Living in NYC, I'm lucky to get a glimpse of a few starts on a clear night. I was just outside and for the first time in forever witnessed a "shooting star"... Then another... And another... Etc. I was very, VERYYYY amazed, and realized it must be one of the bigger meteor showers. I guess the timing of the super clear sky was very good tonight. The stars are very clear as well.... But actually seeing a meteor shower is a whole other experience, I cannot say I have seen one before this with such clarity and astonishment! As soon as I got home of course I looked it up and have come up with this:
Geminid meteor showers to delight city on Monday - Chandigarh - City - The Times of India
StarDate Online | 2009 Meteor Showers and Viewing Tips
Yahoo! Year in Review 2009 - End-of-Year Sky Show: Geminid Meteor Shower
Again, this was a wonderful experience, especially for someone in such a big city.
Can anyone else relate?
Thanks for the heads-up. I'm going to check it out tonight. We had a meteor shower last summer but it rained the day it was suppose to peak.
I saw it =D
I'm really bummed, went out to watch it and saw nothing but CLOUDS!!!:evil:
Having a wreck WOULD make a person see stars! I hope no one was hurt.
Yeah, everybody in the car was alright...and nothing serious happened to my car...nothing important was ruined...rust a big dent from where i smacked the guard rail and damage to both bumpers...
