Shooting star unspectacular

Shooting star unspectacular

What can I say? Tonight is one of the best nights of the year for shooting stars, and we have a nice, thick cloud cover. As usual.

There’s one bright spot, though. Reading the BBC’s article on the spectacle, you have a chance to watch the little video of the UK weather forecast about half-way down, which suggests that at least most of my family will also be denied a decent view of this amazing and stunning natural phenomenon. As an added bonus, at the end of the clip, a short text suggests another video you might enjoy, only this blurb has been truncated, so it reads: “Skywatchers are getting ready for the most exciting displays of shooting&hellip” — an intriguing possibility indeed.
