Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.

Meteor Shower Tomorrow night

FIRST METEOR SHOWER OF 2012: The annual Quadrantid meteor shower peaks on Wednesday morning, Jan. 4th, when Earth passes through a narrow stream of debris from a comet thought to have broken apart some 500 years ago. The shower is expected to be strong (as many as 100 meteors per hour), but elusive, with a peak that lasts no longer than a couple of hours. The shower's radiant near Polaris favors observers in the northern hemisphere. Images, live audio from a meteor radar, and more information are available on today's edition of http://spaceweather.com.

Wednesday morning, Jan. 4th is the day when the odds of getting hit by a meteor are greatly increased.

Over on another forum, one person claims to have seen one. The other several people posting from around the US, nothing -even some with clear skies and away from the city lights.

Well, I'm glad I didn't get up to look for something then. I thought about it, but decided I'd rather sleep.
