Early morning on the 1st, we went outside to see what the Aurigid meteor shower would come up with. Some years it's minor, but there were predictions that this one might be quite dramatic -- perhaps hundreds of meteors per hour. Unfortunately, the moon was quite bright, so we only saw on the order of dozens. Still, it was a great show. Roberta saw a lot more than I did this time. Some of them left streaks which lasted a second or two. We sat out in our "corral" on reclining chairs and just enjoyed the sights (hoping that no bears would show up -- it's on what we call the Wildlife Highway.)
