Tonight is the peak of the Lyrid meteor shower. If you are interested in watching check out the links below for details. Basically, after midnight, look overhead and expect to see 10-20 "shooting stars" per hour. Last year's Lyrids produced some classic examples of fireballs that left persistent trails.

Of course, the weather has been clear and beautiful here for two weeks... and it is supposed to storm like mad tonight! Wouldn't you just know it?
I'm sorry to hear that you are in a similar situation, SP. Maybe we will fare better for The Perseids on August 12. They were awesome last year and may even be better this year.

We can only hope. Venus the morning star has been good to me. I have had a clear view for months.
