I just came in from a smoke... saw more than I've ever seen in my life during that 7 minutes, at least one per minute.

I've looked during "peak" shower times for years and never seen more than one during a smoke.

This is incredible! They are going in all directions, seems like they're coming from overhead...

Ohio, BTW.

Louisiana here. Saw 3 in about 3 minutes. Too dang cold out there!
 Quoting: Earth Cries


Cold? In Louisiana?
It's 21 here. Burrrrr!
 Quoting: Nika


Louisiana here as well! I just went outside for about 10 minutes and saw 7, but 5 of them were in about a 2 minute time span.

And yes! it's cold as shit here in Louisiana tonight! I'm in Lafayette and it's 36 right now. One thing many people don't realize is that a 36 degree temp down here actually has a chill factor of about 20. The air is heavy and wet being so close to the Gulf of Mexico. So the humidity makes it hot as shit in the summer, and cold as shit in the winter. LoL

I remember going skiing in Vail, CO a few years ago and I was standing outside in 5 degree weather and was thinking to myself WTF??? It felt like what 40 degrees feels like in Louisiana. It's crazy.

After reading this I had to see what the sky here was like, at first I thought my eyes were playing tricks on me because I was just seeing trails, but after focusing on a place there were a few trails that went by. Too cool! I'm in North Phoenix by one of the mountain preserves.

Thanks for posting this O.P.

I totally get what you mean by a 'wet cold'.
It can be -0F around here, and if it is dry and calm, it's not too bad.
And when the air is wet and blowing, 20F can suck.

I'm in NE Oklahoma and my son and I just went out and OMG there is an awesome light show going on. We were out for about 15 minutes and counted over 30 shooting stars and then we saw a beautiful fireball that was blue with an orange tail. It was so pretty!

Add this:
New meteor shower might coincide with 2012 Geminids!

Debris left behind by Comet Wirtanen might produce 30 meteors per hour, added to 100 meteors per hour from the Geminids. That would be an awesome meteor show!

We’ve had lots of reports of meteors this week, and most are probably part of the Geminid meteor shower, scheduled to peak late night December 13 to dawn December 14 for North American (evening December 14 to dawn December 15 for Asia). But NASA is saying there’s a second possible meteor shower that could significantly boost the number of meteors you’ll see. The source of the possible new shower is Comet 46P/Wirtanen. Bill Cooke of NASA’s Meteoroid Environment Office says debris left in Wirtanen’s orbit might produce as many as 30 meteors per hour, added to the 100 meteors per hour from the Geminids. That would be an awesome meteor show!

It is the annual Geminids meteor shower. There are unlikely to be any meteorites from the shower. It peaks 12/14 early morning ~1am. Very spectacular.

Absolute amazing sky tonight in New Berlin, WI. (SE part of State)

I haven't seen this many stars out (constellations) ever in my quarter century of life. And to top it all of.. every few minutes the Western Sky is pelted with another fragment of outer space.

Very hard to capture, they last a mere moment.

Also, I find that some of the stars doing a bizarre wobbling?

Can someone explain this phenomenon to me? Its as if they are getting closer and then tuning back to their regular position.

Here in Madison, the couple of times I went out tonight I saw no Geminids. :(

But, the sky did look super cool.

Oh man, I wish you could see what I'm seeing only an hour and and a half east of you.

It's like the night sky decided to upgrade to 3DHD just for tonight, probably has something to do with the temperature we've been receiving. For this time of year she is rather abnormal.

Just took my dog out and didn't see anything looking at orion. Stopped for a sec before coming in and saw 4 in about 1 minute, 3 in 2 seconds!

Go two fists up and one fist over from the little dipper for a point of origin. In Virginia if it matters, but were nearing dawn so it's approaching prime viewing time.
