Don't MISS this tonight...Leonids Meteor Shower!!!
This will be a very short and brief post to alert all my blog visitors.
Sometime tonight, past midnight of 18 November ( Wednesday ), there will be an expected fireworks of meteors in the night sky. This is brought about by the appearance of the Leonids Meteor passing close to earth and vice-versa.
The 2 best places in the world to catch the viewing this time is North America and Asia.
Those of us in Singapore can prepare to see these fiery meteor fireworks from approximately midnight onwards upto 5am. The peak is between 3- 5 am.
For better viewing, go to a dark area free of urban built up lighting....the dark corners of a beach,
hilltop, Japanese Garden, Science Centre....etc.
Binoculars... if you know how to use them fast and properly, may add to viewing pleasure.
Otherwise, it can be a hindrance.
Unk Dicko would be an Owl tonight!
