    is expected to begin in about 2 hours [​IMG]

    earth is passing through the 1446 stream of comets, closer to the action than last time it passed. apparently asia gets the best view,and us north americans get somewhat screwed, it should be a rate of 500 visible meteors an hour.

    discuss this shiz here [​IMG]

    I didn't see anything, and im in the middle-east, must have fallen asleep whilst waiting, and then woken up without realizing i had fallen asleep. [​IMG]

    I can't believe i missed this, i should have had the best view.

    We must prepare the anti-northen-hemisphere ray!
    That'll teach them for watching a meteor shower without us!
