It’s a Meteor shower!!!! This week has been the annual Gemind meteor shower….which is best visible between 1am and 3am in the eastern sky (by the gemini constellation) on a cloudless sky (of course!). They are bright enough that you can actually see them in your background if you and your neighbors do not have tons of outdoor lighting on.
And I saw them!! They peaked on wednesday night, which was an extremely cloudy night. I just happened to be coming home at 3am and there was a break in the cloud cover for about 20 mins. Standing in my backyard, staring up into the sky, I saw several streaks of light move across the sky, and smiled.

The meteor shower should be visible for another week. In fact, I think I’ll be going outside right now……
