I look up at the sky, and wonder where I am on earth. Then I wonder where I am in the solar system. Then I wonder where I am in the galaxy. Then I wonder where I am in the universe. Then I wonder what universe am I in.

I've seen a bunch here in Toronto, Canada. I live right in the city too so it's usually pretty hard to see anything but the clouds cleared up and after staring up for an hour, I saw a couple of really large bright ones. It's truly amazing and beautiful!

Peak starts in about 10 minutes.

Saw three just now in a couple minutes in NE Ohio.

Very clear night.

Just saw three very faint ones in Mid-Nebraska.

Viewing socked in below about 20 degrees altitude (elevation) all the way around the horizon, with haze.

Will be going back out in a bit. Used to sit out literally hours at a time. Can't do that any more.

Oh, if you have Christmas lights burning and are trying to see any meteors, turn off your Christmas lights and you Might see a few more faint ones per 20 minute's veiwing.

At 11:52 I saw the most spectacular one I ever witnessed in my whole life.

It literally lit the whole area up...

It was so bright it freaked me out.

Glad I convinced the wife to join me... or else she would not have believed me!

Impressive!!!
 Quoting: Dr. Acula


I live up North of Chicago, can I see them well at this latitude? What is the best area to look? My balcony faces south, which is unfortunately has the city lights on the horizon. It's not too bad though, I am close to the WI border.
 Quoting: CharlieMurphy


people have posted that they been seeing them in Chicago...

i've seen em in every direction... you should be good :)

happy hunting!

Re: Take Your Ass Outside Tonight and Watch The Geminid's Meteor Shower Peak!
I'd rather watch the Perseids

Usually much warmer, or the Leonids are nice

can watch without freezing your ass off.

But, the stupid parking lot at my work has about a billion flood lights.

Dumb shits are wasting so much money lighting up the place so criminals can rob it.

Anyway, back to the meteors!

I finally found my winter coat, hat and gloves. Now I can go outside and watch the meteor shower. I hate winter when you live in a place where it never snows yet it gets so damn cold.

Saw an amazing meteor a few hours ago! Had a long blue-green sparkly tail. No street lights in our 'hood in the mountains makes for great viewing!

Been out several times tonight. So freaking beautiful, clear skys here in Bama have seen at least 50 and several that were just... well words just cant describe them. Wish i had a camera that worked worth a crap in low light to try and capture some of what I've seen tonight.
There is a theory which states that if ever anybody discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable. There is another theory which states that this has already happened.
