Thanks for the reminder. Going outside to look now!


I didn't see any meteors. The shower must not have reached Chicago yet.


Even meteors won't go to Chicago.

I mean..can you blame 'em? I've been there twice, only to the train station, and it was more than enough for me. Last time was 2008, and I counted at least 3 massive blood stains on the outside wall. Feels very welcoming.

I thought it was just a shooting star until it broke up.


Question.
What is a shooting star?
I caught a shooting star once. I put it in my pocket and saved it for a rainy day. You baby boomers know what I'm talking about.

That's a falling star. Shooting stars are too fast to catch.

Obviously.

Oh yeah...you're right.
But didn't David Blaine catch a shooting star between his teeth once...or a bullet or something?

Tried a pre-dawn view from Texas this morning butvclouded out. Best Perseids I ever saw was last year while on a beach in Florida with my grandkids watching a Delta Heavy carrying the Parker probe into space. Just as the thundering rocket arched through zenith to the northeast, two bright Perseids flashed one-two across its path as if to welcome it to space. But the Leonid storm in 2002 remains most awesome of my life, in rural Galveston County, for about half a breathless minute peaking at a >6,000/hr rate [no typo].
