I was up early last week and watched a meteor pass between Mars and Venus. That was cool.

Oh I love catching random shooting stars, one night I was out I actually saw one fragment as it crossed the sky.

May have to catch the show later Venus and Jupiter have been fun to watch for a while now. And now that I know where to look for Saturn, well : )

One nice thing about living 26 floors up with east facing windows, I just had to look straight out to see Venus and Jupiter earlier. And it is an awesome sight.

Good job subby for resisting the temptation to add " your mom," to the headline. You are a bigger man than I. Like your mom.
