It’s the middle of the night. I’m unshaven and wearing pjs. I still thought the time was right to get in front of the camera and tell you a little about Friday’s meteor. It was seen up and down the East Coast from the Middle Atlantic States to New England.
More will be known later Saturday, but here’s your first briefing.
This morning marked the annual Orionids meteor shower. Cometary shrapnel rockets into our atmosphere and burns up. Even though what’s burning is mostly around the size of a grain of sand, it’s a spectacular show.
Whatever. I stood outside nearly two hours and saw none! Disappointed? Absolutely.
