Orionids are on show this week, for the North/NE, a good comfortable period of weather, and the rate of "Falling Stars" is very good.

Enjoy!

I Forgot To Wake Up!

Dang. But we had clouds and fog, so I guess I needed my sleep anyway.

Anyone else look?

Well I am in Gulfport, MS. I had been noticing a few meteors in the few days prior to the peak days. I did see some of the show but it was'nt more than about 10 per hour but I still enjoyed it! Can't wait for the one on Dec. 13th & 14th! Enjoy!
