« on: December 09, 2011, 09:04:09 PM »
December 13/14 are the best days but should already be visible in the Northern hemisphere.

Hoping to see some this year even if I gotta go outside the city.

Hah!  I see your measley meteors and raise you a total lunar eclipse!  First things first euge...   ;)

Saturday morning 12/10/11.  Those of you on the US west coast can watch a sunrise and a total lunar eclipse at the same time!  "How is that possible?" you ask...

It's happening.  It's beautiful.  And I saw a meteor.

Full moon at altitude with snow on the ground = daylight.
