Tonight the Leonid meteor shower


Hi guys just thought I'd let you know that the Leonid meteor shower is this morning starting around 2:am and lasting till around 5:30am EST with its strongest peek at 4:am . They are saying there could be as many as 200-300 per hour at its peek in Asia but only 30-60 per hour in N. America. Viewing conditions are expected to be good this year in N. America because the Moon will not be lighting the sky. So if your like me leave the bar before LAST CALL and catch a great show. Don

Things happen slower in Texas. We would just now be poking our heads out to take a peek but it's too damned cold anyway . . . . we have an actual freeze warning in the next county over tonight. Brrrr.
