For anyone who finds shiny, falling objects entertaining —

There’s going to be a meteor shower tonight! The Earth’s orbit will be passing through the debris zone left by the Temple-Tuttle comet, producing the Leonid meteor shower. The peak hour should be around 10pm (my time, i.e. CT), and it should average roughly 15 stars per hour. Seeing as how the cold front has approached, it’s the perfect time for some hot chocolate and some stargazing on the pool deck for me! …note to self, buy hot chocolate after publishing entry.

To all those out there with a significant other, bring a blanket, each other, and savor the moment!
