    Default Went out at 4am

    I saw about 12-15 in about an hour of viewing, nothing spectacular, but nice anyway. So often it is overcast or there's a moon during these events.

    Tried some exposures but got nothing as far as photos. I should have got up earlier and run over to Asia where the real show was!

    It must be an awesome show in Asia, if indeed they seeing rates fo 200 to 300 per hour. Anyone want to charter a jet and head over to see the real show?

    Twenty, ten, five and let it freeeeEEEEEEeeze!

    I would, but it's too late now. We'll never make it in time. The show is peaking right now. Maybe next year.

    I was out at 3AM - saw many meteors - going in all directions but mainly west to east. Used my wide angle lens - f/2.8 - ISO400 like all the web sites said - zip - nada - nothing on any of the photos.

    I will try again for the show in December.

    Is that the Geminids around the 13th and 14th? If so, I have read that they could average 50 to 100 per hour with a medium, rich display.

    I only saw one last night traveling from North to South, but at least it was a bright one.

    Apparently, here in the West there was at least one spectacular show, although it was not technically a Taurid,
    WWW.Spaceweather.com

    had a quick article, calling it a small asteroid. I did not see it as I was sound asleep at the time.

    Yes - I am hoping for good weather for that one.
