    Won't be able to see any on Jersey tonight. Extremely low cloud. Problem is, above it is bright blue sky! Well, when I was flying it was so I presume it's really the same. Bugger it, and last night apparently was fantastic and clear...:(

    I might have a look out tonight.... my OH is coming round soon and he's into spacey sciency things so I might ask him if he fancies driving out somewhere in the countryside to have a look, because I read on the internet its better to go out into the country where there isn't the glare of lights from towns which can make the meteors less visible :)

    I like things like this :D

    Awwh no if my camera was any good I would send u a video.

    The last time (that I can remember!) I saw shooting stars, was in 2002, when I was in morocco. We were camping on a mountain and lying around the camp fire we saw loads and loads of them, it was really cool! They seemed so close and clear!

    we usually get a good view as theres low light polution being in the country, but low cloud the past few nights meant we could see nothing:(

    Hopefully it'll be clearer for the Leonid meteor showers in Novermeber/December, past few years we've been lucky & had a reall good viwe for that one :)
