Meteor Shower Tonight

Well… more like tomorrow early morning, but according to SpaceWeather.com, the eta Aquarid meteor shower is tonight.

Take it from a student of astronomy, if you really want to see something spectacular, get as far away from the city lights as possible. Me? I’m just going to be in my backyard tomorrow morning, and laughing at all the people who got up even earlier and wasted gas money on driving out all the way…

Kidding. If you really want to do that, I’m sure you’ll have much more fun than I will but I have school.

What I think you really ought to do is get up a few hours before sunrise, make yourself some tea or coffee or a root beer float, get a lawn chair, and look up. Do it at least once before you die.
