Watching the Sky

It’s always fun to look at the night sky and even more fun during a meteor shower.

ORIONID METEOR SHOWER: Earth is passing through a stream of debris from Halley’s Comet, source of the annual Orionid meteor shower.  Forecasters expect the shower to peak on Oct. 21st with approximately 20 meteors per hour.  Bright moonlight will reduce visibility, however. The best time to look is during the hours before local sunrise when the shower’s radiant in the constellation Orion is high in the sky.  Check http://spaceweather.com for more information.

  • Still getting cold at night on the Gunflint Trail. 21 degrees for a low. At least there aren't any bugs yet.
