And TA, I'm in VA, too, looks like the storm should be past us, by the weekend.
in this case it's comet 55P /Temple Tuttle
A brief surge of activity is expected begin around 11:45 p.m. ET Saturday, Nov. 18. In Europe, that corresponds to early Sunday morning, Nov. 19 at 4:45 GMT. The outburst could last up to two hours.
I don't know if this has any tie, but in the last few nights I have been seeing increased shooting star activity here in VA. I was wondering if it was unusual, because I'd never seen so many in such a short time. Maybe this has something to do with it?
