Saw A Meteor Last Night

Went for a walk last night. Good reason for it. Last night's tea consisted of a large steak that had lots of pepper steak seasoning. And that was it. Followed that with some chocolate chip icecream. Not too much mind. That necessitated the walk.

On the way home I saw a big, bright light streaking across the sky. It was a meteor and can't have landed too far away. I didn't hear anything on the news this morning about it either. Last night I was downloading some vids and one of them included a meteor nearly crashing into a 4WD full of people. Amazing.

Can't tell you that or it won't come true.

some years ago, there was a meteor shower at night, and we stayed up for an hour or so lying on our backs on the terrace, looking up. it's good to be fascinated, no?

I'd love to be able to view the Leonid Meteor Shower which occurs every 3.3 years. Not sure where it is best viewed however. Perhaps I should do some research. A meteor is a beautiful thing.
