2018 - Meteors and sky watching


#41

I am hoping the fog will lift by then and we will have clear skies!


#42

Just checked at 8:05 PM tonight. For the 3rd and 4th, partly cloudy and for the 5th, mostly cloudy. (shaking head in hands :frowning_face:) Maybe for those first two nights there won’t be that many clouds and I’ll be able to see some.

Isn’t that always the way, Jim? Always cloudy when there’s a chance of something interesting in the night sky… :roll_eyes:

Another thing to watch for in the middle of the month is Comet 46P/Wirtanen

which should be bright enough to see with the naked eye (predicted to get to magnitude +3) around December 16th.
:pray::pray::pray::pray::pray: for :night_with_stars::night_with_stars::night_with_stars: and no :cloud: or :cloud_with_rain::cloud_with_lightning_and_rain:

We have a possibility of it being clear the evening of the 4th!
Thanks Helen I will mark that one of the calendar to watch for!


#45

Thank you, Helen. I just marked my calendar also. This is also one of my 6 sister’s birthday! I’ll have to tell her. :wink:

Tonight…hopefully we will see something!

4:30 pm. CST …still cloudy…:roll_eyes: Hopefully in the next 8 hours it clears!

:disappointed:…strike out on the meteor viewing!
