    After reading the alignment of the planets post, I just remembered that this Friday is supposed to be a great Morning to view metoer showers. I almost forgot about it! Wow, glad I remembered and thanks for the post to make me remember. :D

    If I remember correctly the moon will not be full and not even half and thus not very bright. So, they should be great to view if the weather is clear.

    How about post your thoughts that you had while watching the shower. Scientific or not, they always make me think about the universe, our place in it, the meaning of life. It would be great to hear your thoughts that you had during this event.
