    Hello all,

    my wife has managed to see one bright Taurid fireball even through the big window in our living room.
    As she has been trained on the Perseids over several seasons, I believe her.
    I have not spent enough time ouside, so I can't report.

    Clear skies,

    JG

    Hey Kathy. A nice report from you. The nice thing about meteor shower viewing, is that you don't need a telescope or binoculars. Just a willingness to go out and sweep around the radiant, and possibly for hours if the results are good. Thanks for your excellent report Kathy, and don't forget the great upcoming Geminid meteor showers coming soon in mid December.
