I was up a little early this morning, and with the Leonids peaking this morning I figured I'd step outside and try to catch a meteor or two. I got one, but that was enough for me. I was tired. I hadn't slept well. It was cold. And the kids were tearing up the house.
Here's the time-line for morning of:
Date: 17-Nov-2010 Wednesday
6:45 AM - Leonid meteor - 3.0 Magnitude
Int'l Designator: nice try
Yeah. It was a Leonid meteor. It was faint and orange like a few I've seen recently. Yay.
