Orionids Meteor Shower
« on: Oct 21, 2017, 04:00 AM »
Anyone else go out to watch the Orionids shower? I was out from 3 to 4:30. Counted 22 streakers and half a dozen pinpoints.

We had a campfire last evening and saw a spectacular streaker. It went almost horizon to horizon and disintegrated with a long, really bright tail.

Pretty cool stuff. Kind of reminds me of how small we really are.

I fish a lot at night and I am always watching the night sky... I have gotten some great shows over the years!

Slept through any thing last night. I will do the same through the rest of it as it is cloudy and will stay that way. Rain guessed for Sunday night.

I often fish for bass at night.
Pal, I still have no idea where to get most attractive betting odds and offers. It's totally driving me nuts. Next time I'm gonna try that site. Do you get what this means?

It was a pretty cool show. We couldn't get a look at the Geminids shower a couple nights ago. All clouded up. It's actually a better one than the Orionids.
