    &gt;&gt;"It's now or never," said Robert Naeye, editor of Mercury, the magazine of the Astronomical Society of the Pacific. "People should take advantage of this year's Leonid storm, because astronomers don't think we'll see another storm like this one until the year 2099. We will probably never see a better meteor shower in our lifetimes."&lt;&lt;

    I'm on the West coast...it should be a good show![​IMG]

    We actually got up and drove out of the city too see it. At first there was a ton of fog on the road but then it opend up. We got to see it for about an hour before it got foggy around 5:30 it was a prety cool show.
    And the best part was WE got to wake the kids up on a Sunday morning. [​IMG]

    It was sweet. I watched it through the sliding glass window in my living room. Living on a lake rules!

    I'm so mad. I was out last night and didn't see ANY! Everyone else I was with saw a lot, but I didn't see one. I was upset. I like watching falling stars.

    I LOVE YOU AJ!!! Til we meet again. ~Michelle

    The sky over Colorado Springs was crystal clear. I must have seen over 1,000 meteors between 2:30 and 5:00 this morning. It was an awesome display! [​IMG] Most were short-lived, but a few were spectacular, leaving lots of glowing debris in their wake. One even burst into several pieces part way down. Definitely worth staying up for!
