anybody else looking at the meteor shower?



There's some crazy stuff going on with the sky right now. Take the time to look up. Reminds you of how small you and your problems really are.

Too many lights in my neck of the woods. I can never see anything cool.

I've always been interested in space stuff. It's really cool if you give it a few minutes to learn just the basics.


It indeed does make you think.


I got a really cool telescope when I was 14-15, somewhere in there, and I still have it to this day. Love it.


The coolest thing I've ever seen, minus the telescope, was being on Cocoa Beach and watching the shuttle lift off. That was absolutely amazing. I'll never forget it.

One of those things you can say you did in your lifetime.


Great stuff. My bro in law has been asking about it. I was in the astronomy club when I was in the 8th grade, that's how I learned about the telescope I got.

I know, I know.....

It's absolutely one of the coolest things to me. Just in having a basic understanding of our overall ignorance to the scale of the universe in which all of us live and breathe in is mesmerizing to me. Then again, I've had a couple makers mark and cokes but still.

Honestly I have no clue. Just stare at the sky for a couple minutes. They should be visible. I've seen no less than fifteen and counting.

It would be cool if I didn't have work in the morning and I was drinking a beer. Oh well.

Thanks for the 'heads-up'. Walked outside and counted 20 in just 5 minutes. Do you think that this is dust from the big asteroid that just passed Earth?

Been doin a lot of soul searching lately.

Its good to look away from a screen once in a while and see something that puts things into perspective.

I was in florida one year and caught one of these. It was awesome. I saw so many that I thought the universe was at war.
