Farmers Almanac alert -tonight (after midnight) is the prime time to observe an annually occur8ng meteor shower - enjoy...
I think this is the one my daughter and I saw. We drove the truck out into the pasture, put lawn chairs up in the truck bed and watched. I've never seen anything like it. DH had to get up early and go to work so he wasn't able to join us. He's wished he had ever since. We want to catch this one tonight together.busybee870 said:we love meteor showers, ususally lay on blankets and look up and watch them, about 7 years ago was watching one and you could see the flames on them it was the coolest i had ever seen!
yea. Day of the Triffids (killed them with salt water)FourDeuce said:Every time I go out meteor watching I'm reminded of a science fiction story I read years ago called Day of the Triffids, by John Wyndham. In the story there's a meteor shower which has bright green flashes most of the night long, and it leaves most of the people on the Earth blind the next day. Then these stinging(and walking) plants come along and start killing people, which makes things really tough for the few people who can see.
They made a movie of the book back in the 60's, but it wasn't very good. :nono:
