I just remember Yahoo saying we were suppose to have a shower but I'm not sure what meteor shower it's suppose to be. Anyone know what time that's suppose to start at all?

I'm going to try to watch it.

Brr, is it freezing out there.

Oh and btw, when I went to the store tonight, Jupiter did go wicked fast past the moon. then when I came out, it set in one spot. I guess.

I was like WTH is that? Wasn't no plane. But, it zipped on by. Vroom... That's how it went.

I was early this morning.....Wed, Jan 4th....

i tried staying up for it but could not....so i missed it too




If you're up early Wednesday morning and the weather is promising, bundle up and go outside. The Quadrantid meteor shower, the first of 2012, should be at its best between 3 a.m. and dawn, Eastern time. If you get lucky, you may get a silently satisfying sky show.

If you enjoy the sight of "shooting stars" then make plans to be out looking skyward during the predawn hours on Wednesday (Jan. 4) when a strong display of Quadrantid meteors may appear. This first meteor shower of the year may end up being one of the best of 2012.

Oh bummer, I thought they said Wednesday morning. It's Wednesday, dang it. I was thinking like, 3AM tonight. And here I was only talking about it all last night, and I still missed it.

Bah, I always miss the action.

It was last night. I drove out to a nearby observatory about 30 minutes from where I live, since the light pollution isn't really that bad out there. In the 2-3 hours I was out there, I saw at the most 10 meteors. It wasn't quite what I expected.

Still, the first one was incredibly bright, probably the brightest I've ever seen. Then I saw 3 meteors in a matter of 10 seconds, back-to-back, which was pretty cool. A few cops actually stopped by the observatory and hung out with us for like an hour

I spent 3 hours in the middle of a farm field in -6.6 C with no real winter gear on. I counted about 68 individual events- including one which was unrelated but bright, orange. Likely space debri.

It wasn't an AMAZINNGGG show, but this shower is known to be hit and miss.
