meteor shower

Recommended Posts

http://www.cnn.com/2002/TECH/space/11/18/leonids.meteors/index.html

 

 

One of the most celebrated meteor showers will peak early Tuesday over Europe and North America, sending hundreds or thousands of fireballs streaking through the atmosphere each hour.

 

The annual meteor shower takes place every November when the Earth passes through a debris trail left by Comet Tempel-Tuttle, which sheds material as it swings near the sun every 33 years.

 

The first cloud will spark a flurry of meteors that peaks over Europe around 4 a.m. GMT Tuesday (11 p.m. ET Monday), according to NASA.

 

Unlike the 2001 show, the 2002 edition will feature an unwelcome guest, the full moon, which is expected to wash out many fainter meteors.

Yeah I went out to see that last year. It was this cold then too, and I couldn't stay out for more than a half an hour. Maybe this year I'll have company.

It's supposed to peak here around 5:30am, i might try to wake up that early but chances are i wont get up and just throw the alarm clock out of the window. I think i'll stick with midnight or 1am.

i really wanna see this, but that means I'd have to leave the city at 3:30am, get a nice spot by 4:00am, and lay back and watch for a couply of hours. I'm cool with that, but none of my friends are.

Rather shitty... I heard last year's was much better, I'm really pissed I didn't see that one.

 

We rolled down to the beach like 50-deep, made a gigantic bonfire, did flips over it, and drank Miller High Life from like 12:30 AM to 6:00 AM. Saw plenty shooting stars, but very few meteors, and only one made me shit my pants. It was fucking large, and the blue streak stayed on for like 5 minutes. And the fucking news saying it was gonna be more of a meteor STORM than a shower, bleh. I certainly had fun, but I don't know if it was worth my sore neck. Beer,
