haha, you guys know that a meteor is the size of a salt grain?

Btw- here in the springs the sky is clear, but I feel wierd staring up at the sky and thinking, I can kinda feel myself swaying a bit, like im dizzy and off balance, I just looked for about 5 minutes, but its not even close to midnight, ill keep checking.

Hey if you live in SC you should be looking around 1:30, a bit later.

*and remember mike68 its not constantly happening, you just have to look up at the sky, you'll see some.

I havent seen anything yet off my back porch, but then again the back porch of my apartment just faces another apartment building so my view of the sky is limited from there.

yup, a meteor shower is just a ton of shooting stars all night long. Unfortunatly I didn't see anything, but I wasn't looking long enough, oh well there are like 4 or 5 meteor showers a year, I guess there is a really good one in October, ill let you guys know.
