Did anyone see this mornings meteor shower? It was supposed to start 4:33AM (or 4:37am) pacific time. I was waiting all week for it after all the
predictions about it being 100 meteors an hour, then 200, but with the maximum prediction of 1000. I'm in Mountain Time so I went out a little after
5am and waited.... some good ones that were way better than my last meteor shower experience... but far from these predictions. I just got back in at
6:30 AM MT and I can easily say my experience was... disappointing. How was everyone else experience? Did I get the time wrong? All in all, I saw
maybe 15-20 meteors in an hour and a half. With all the articles talking about how good it was supposed to be, how Nasa and other scientists were
really interested in studying these meteors because they were from a long term comet. For supposedly being a once in a life time event, mine was a big
let down. I had to give up because the sun was creeping into the sky.
