I apologize for the unrefined post here, but I am posting from my phone.
For those of you in the Southwest I hope you caught the massive meteor that shot across the whole sky around 7:00 MST. To say it was amazing would be a huge understatement. I was bummed to have missed the Geminids Meteor Shower last week due the extreme cold we had, but this more than made up for that & more.
If you missed it, there are pictures & videos on the internet & I'm sure news stations will show footage. Do check out a good video of it if you can. It was like fireworks as pieces broke off in other directions.
What a way to say farewell to the long nights & usher in longer days! THAT is exactly why i chose to live this life; to experience the unforgettable wonders nature has to show us.
(NOTE: The authorities have said this "light show" was debris from a Russian rocket re-entering Earth's atmosphere and not a meteor. Either way, it was still quite breathtaking to watch!)
