Leonid Meteor Shower tonight … and it’s raining, again

My almost-completely favourite-est science blog io9,  reminded me that tonight showcases the once a year visual treat that is the Leonid Meteor shower.

For as long as I’ve been aware the Shower existed I have wanted to watch it live, and EVERY year, wherever I’ve been in the world, it has rained!

This proves, beyond a doubt, the Cosmos is a Bitch!

The only meteor shower I’m going to see tonight

  1. Yeah, this happens to me every year too! Even missed the last lunar eclipse.

    Dang! Wrong kind of shower. Oh well, there’s always next year.

  3. I thought it comes in December. I wonder if there is a meteor shower then. When I was a teenager, I sat on the parents’ car in the driveway on many a summer’s night and wished upon a falling star. I got to wish a lot.

    Hmph! How inconsiderate of her. Like Rati, I missed the last lunar eclipse due to completely overcast skies, and was so miserable about it. Stupid clouds!

    Oh, I want to watch too, but the sky is gray with clouds. What would you expect in BC in November? Cloud are petty much the norm from November to May here.
