- Anyone seen any meteors?

It's a tad early I think. You really want to be looking after midnight. They peak on the 12 when on a good year in the right conditions you can expect to see 60+ an hour.
This year is expected to be a good one by the way, although of course the moon isn't playing ball.Posted 8 years agoNorthwindSubscriber
Druidh, you weren't the poor sod I scared half to death at Clubbiedean were you?
(I was lying at the side of the trail, watching meteors- saw a few, worth the trip to get away from the streetlights- and this guy on a hardtail pulled up about 4 feet away, but didn't see me… I think he was just having a rest. I thought I'd better break the silence, so I said "DARK, ISN'T IT!" though a wee bit louder than I meant to- he gave a little girly shriek and rode off, then shouted abuse at me from down the trail. Oops!)
Anyway- thoroughly nice night out, wee ride, bit of meteorite watching… Not sure how many I saw, 20 or so in about 30-40 minutes I reckon, though some were total squibs, the good ones were very impressive. After scaring that guy I ended up with some tunes on, the soundtrack from Final Fantasy 7 is flawless stargazing music.Posted 8 years ago
