Meteor Shower - overnight Friday to Saturday

Looks like there appears to be a Meteor Shower this Friday night into Saturday morning - from about 2-4am.

Everything you need to know: Camelopardalid meteor shower May 23-24 | Human World | EarthSky

Looks like I'll either be up late drinking or setting an alarm!

That was pretty neat. Daughter and spent about an hour out on our zero gravity chairs. We saw 5 or 6 good meteors from 2:30-3:30 (eastern time).

And then she got cold- she tried laying on me (under the blanket we took out), but her whole body was shivering!

I'm bummed. We had such a lousy, rainy overcast that everything was obscured.
