Meteor Shower Tonight

Just thought I would share with you all that a rather intense but short lived meteor shower will be taking place tonight. Named "The Quadrantids Meteor Shower" it has been going for a few days now but will reach its peak intensity overnight tonight, after midnight to be more exact. Possibly 80-130 shooting stars per hour (or one every 30 seconds) could happen during the overnight. If your not a fan of staying up late, you can always get up a little early and will probably still be able to see a good amount in the pre-dawn hours as well.

So if you're looking to go freeze your behind off you have a good reason to do so. Look to the Northeast sky around a 45 degree angle. If you can find the big and little dipper in the sky, direct your eyes to just below them. The moon will be nearly dull to keep the lighting down and it's looking to be a rather clear night.

I really enjoy visiting your website. It's great.

You have a wonderful writing style and it's fun and informative to read what you have to say.

Now for a bit of constructive criticism from a senior citizen . . .

I notice that you use the pronoun "your" when you mean to use the contraction "you're" (or "you are").

In the spirit of helpfulness, I thought I would let you know.

Brenda, although this post isn't mine, I'm as guilty as the General and probably even more so when it comes to good grammar. Don't ever hesitate to offer some constructive criticism. It's always more than welcome here. I'm sure if you were to go through the entire site I would be lucky to pull off a C-.

More mistakes will be made here and feel free to let us know. It would help a little if you could maybe quote the sentence though to help us to find the error.

Thanks for the kind words of enjoying the website Brenda.

Glad to see you enjoy the site, Pat does a great job of keeping it up!

Thanks for your correction, I see my 4 years and $60,000 for college have paid off nicely! :)

I think we are in cahoots today General. Posting at the same time and probably fixing the correction at the same time :)

If I'm awake later and the lights aren't too bright around here maybe I'll be able to catch some of the meteor shower. I remember one many moons ago that was unbelievable because there were so many of them shooting through the sky and we were on a hill with no lights for miles away. I think it's a bit too cold to find a nice dark hill though tonight :)

Thanks for the "Pat does a great job" but without all of the gang, yourself included this site wouldn't be nothing like it is today ;)

Celestial events are a bane of New Yorkers. After dropping to -5°F last hour a cirrus deck has now moved in, obscuring much of the dimmer stars.

I'll simply wait for the perseids.

Had the clouds around here through about 2am. Went out trying to find where to look but it was just to dang cold to spend more then 5 minutes out there.
