Star light, star bright,
First star I see tonight,
I wish I may, I wish I might,
Have this wish I wish tonight.
There is, this very evening, a meteor shower.
As of 7 seconds ago (a little after 18.27) the Leonid shower began its path across the orbit of this little globe of ours.
Tonight is the peak night, but the Leonids will be visible for approximately ten more nights.
So when I’ve finished watching The Mummy (Brendan Fraser, not Tom Cruise), I’m going outside, in my PJs, to see what I can see.
I’ll try and get a member or two of the family to join me.
PJs are optional.
And if I’m a zombie tomorrow morning, it’s because I didn’t take heed of the lesson in Night of the Comet.
