Look Up!

If you’re out and about this evening, be sure to look up. You’re likely to see some objects traveling 80,000 miles per hour through the atmosphere. They will be different colors, and there will be a whole lot of them. No, not UFO’s! They’re thousands of meteors streaking across our sky.

The annual Geminid Meteor shower reaches it’s peak through tonight and into the morning. (Wouldn’t you know it would have to be so darned cold?) The very best viewing will be after moonset, but you’re likely to see a few flying meteors almost any time tonight. So find a clearing in our “forest” where you can see the sky, and enjoy the view!
