Abel, I want to thank you for posting about this again!

I checked intereference after having an extensive phone conversation with the one and only HeartlandGirl Anyways, I saw this thread again and decided to make a little trip outside. Drove quickly over to Krispy Kreme and got some donuts and then made a little trip to the entrance to a small canyon near the mountains. I sat in my car in the parking lot trying to look up and see the meteors. I hadnt seen any, so I decided to get out. What do you know, the first thing I honestly saw was a really big one

It ended up being a really cool time though, just stading outside listening to crickets in the entrance to the canyon while enjoying meteors and donuts. I'm really glad you posted about this.

Oh, ABEL, that is so cool! I wish I'd read this post sooner--I would love to see something like that!

We have a planetarium about 2 miles from my house, and I'd love to take a class there one of these days...

you still might have a chance to see some more meteors tonite and for the next couple nites. last nite was just the peak.

you should take a class diane! i took physics 1411 (intro to astronomy) and physics 1412 at one of the community colleges here a couple years ago. i was surprised that they were actually physics classes i was taking just for fun, lol. everyone thought i was crazy haha! even stranger is that some of the math equations that i've never been able to grasp before finally started making sense when it was a subject i could relate too...even logarithms started making sense haha!
