Yes. It's not very convenient for them to schedule these showers at that time. We should call someone
I have learned that to be with those I like is enough.

Haven't seen that many meteors this year where I am, but the Aurora Borealis have been putting up quite a show this year :up:

The heavens are truly a magical and breathtaking part of our Universe :up:

It landed around here. The experts expect that it's between 4 and 400kgs. Happy hunting.

Researchers have pinpointed where in the rugged B.C. Interior a chunk of space rock landed more than two months ago.

A fireball lit up the sky over parts of Western Canada on the night of Sept. 4 and some witnesses reported hearing a loud boom.

The University of Calgary says an asteroid fragment a metre wide and weighing up to five tonnes crashed through the Earth's atmosphere that night.

Researchers put out a call to the public for videos to help them find where thousands of meteorites ranging from as small as a peppercorn to as large as 10 kilograms landed.

They narrowed it down to a 20-kilometre stretch from just east of Crawford Bay, on the shore of Kootenay Lake.

A visiting master's student from Italy made the first meteorite discovery last month on private property in Crawford Bay.

"At first I couldn't believe it. Ever since I was a child I got up with my father to see the night sky, and it was like a dream to hold a space rock in my hand," Fabio Ciceri said in a news release

I got excited when I saw this topic, but alas, it's not what I thought it was. Last night my girlfriend and I were out for a walk around 10 PM and saw an incredibly bright teal light to the south. We were on Black Mountain. I cannot explain how bright this light was, we're talking lightning but only to the south and it was in the clouds. I saw it at first, spun my girlfriend around who saw the tail end of it. About 5 seconds later it flashed again but never after that. Suffice to say it was confusing.

Would love to know what it was.
