To see the meteors, wait for a clear night and then find a dark spot, well away from any lights. Allow your eyes to become fully accustomed to the dark. This usually takes around 45 minutes. Then look straight up. You may want to dust off the garden recliner and climb into a sleeping bag because in the northern hemisphere it is going to get cold. Even in the southern hemisphere, things can get chilly in the middle of the night at this time of year.


What a fantastic way to kick off the Holidaze with a little Xmas cheer and meteors streaking across the inky blackness we in America call "the sky"

My GF and I love to drive up into the Rockies, bundle up in the back of the old F150 and enjoy nature in all it's magnificent glory. If that nasty old skinwalker comes around this year; instead of our usual taunts and jibes; he will be greeted with a hearty "howdy neighbor" and an offer of some sweet treats and capn Morgan.

Here are my observations from last night and It was very cold here in Tucson. I was in a sleeping bag with layered clothing and I was still cold. 1:00 AM - 2:00 AM 49 meteors, 3:30 AM - 4:30 AM 50 meteors, 4:30 AM - 5:30 AM 65 meteors. My total was 220 but thats including the first couple hours when I was going in and out of the house and a little bit after 5:30 when I just didn't want to go inside because I didn't want them to be over. I used a counter app I downloaded on my phone that worked really well you just press the volume up button on you phone so you don't have to look away from the sky.

My lady and I drove up into the Jemez www.americansouthwest.net... at about midnight and it was so cold that we checked into our friends b&b after about an hour of meteor gazing. During that time we averaged about 1 a min. Might try again tonite on Sandia crest....www.turquoisetrail.org...
