Default Anyone watch the meator shower last night?

I watched for a couple of hours. It was really cool.

One of the last ones I saw seemed like it was just a hundred feet off the ground. It looked as if it was flying horizontal to the earth. It would flame up and go out then flame up again. It did this about 4 or 5 times. As it was providing such a nice light show it also sounded like a top fuel car in and out of the throttle.

Never seen that before....

I forgot about it. Will we be able to see it again tonight, or are the fireworks over?

I looked it up looks like this is the last of the TWO days of the peak shower. I think if the fluffy clouds roll out I'll try to watch it!

I think tonight is the last night.

If you get a chance try to check it out. It was pretty neat.
