Ohh, that's still going on today? I meant to watch it yesterday but it was storming, and the clouds and stuff. But it has cleared up to day so I'll be out there.

Like the others have said. "Bust ou the liquor and get some lawn chairs!"


What are you looking at foo?

It going on for a week. Not sure when it will be "visible" in the UK, though.

Probably at night... hur hur hur.

On a slightly less pedantic note, it was Last night and tonight that it was visible in the UK. Apparently you only really got a good view of it in North England and the North of Scotland. Having said that though, I still managed to see 3 meteors here in the Southwest of Scotland, which isn't exactly amazing considering the amount I usually see on any normal clear night.

It's a 2 mile walk home so I have plenty time to stare at the stars... =)

What the hell. I attempted to watch LAST night and couldn't see anything due to the cloud cover. Will attempt to do so again tonight, maybe. JUST MAYBE.

Maybe you could have told me yesterday so I could watch it. According to your source, it's been over with for quite a while.

I hope it's even more of a sight today. Fuck the liquor, this is awesome sober.

Agreed.

It would be cooler if I was higher than I am. I'm spending my last week of summer being as lazy and stoned as possible.

I saw a few, but it was far too cloudy to see them all.
