In a recent magazine I receive there was an article on the meteor shower that is going to happen next Wednesday, November 18th. Here's what the article in Country Living's November issue had to say:
"Cast your eyes skyward to glimpse a dazzling celestial display, as the annual Leonides meteor shower - named for the constellation Leo, from which the meteors appear to originate - lights up the heavens on November 18th.
Astronomers predict one of the most dramatic shows in years. With dozens of shooting stars visible between midnight and sunrise. (Visit leonid.arc.nasa.gov to find out what to expect near you.) For the best view, head to an open space, away from the flow of street lamps, then watch as all-natural bursts of bright white, blue and green streak the night sky - and don't forget to make a wish."
Sounds delightful, doesn't it? I'll be on my roof. Where will you be?
