Well, I observed the Leonids

Well, I observed the Leonids for about four hours last night, and saw roughly four meteors. It might have been three, as they were all very dim, and I could have imagined one. Apparantly at the same time I was watching, observers in Spain saw one every second or so.

The thing that I noticed most was the extreme amount of airplanes in the sky. At one time, two dozen were in my field of vision at the same time! And the sound of engines was steady, a constant deep droning. I guess that’s what happens when you live within 100 miles of the Atlanta airport. Too bad, really.
