    Me and the missus drove to the golf course at 10 and spent 40 minutes looking for shooting stars last night. I donít really think it was dark enough and there was 50% cloud cover. May have seen 1 or 2 but not convinced that I didnít imagine them. Had a lovely time none the less

    25 years ago, some friends and I, and my ex, all set up lawn chair recliners, and sit out in a large field. Starring up, a few hours went by with only a few sightings. But suddenly, a rash of them! Several per minute, and some covered half the sky, they were gone in a flash. The Earth is running into this space dust at over 60,000mph. So, I guess they are quick! It was a rare experience.

    As a teenager, the family went out to the Rockies and we camped at over 11,000 feet. Iíve never seen the sky like I saw it that night. You could see some stars were closer, some farther, they appeared to spiral upwards forever. You could keep looking for the one farthest away. Some were red, some blue, green, yellow, orange, Even purple! Looking into the edge of the Milky Way was a very 3D view, giant clouds in space.
    Itís easy to see why, back before TV or radio, men studied the night sky on a nightly basis, and how they noticed any star that was out of place. You can bet a meteor shower would give them plenty to talk about!

    Just been in the local pound shop & they had those small magnetic bowls, 'handy' I thought, 'I'll have one'. Went to the till & duly paid. It was only when I got home I realised I'd picked up three...
