    Meteor shower may 5-6. Called a "feeble" shower because of the moon rising. You might glimpse a few if you look on the other side of Aquarius. Ill give it a try since Im sure Ill be up and down as usual.

    Sounds like this will be a beauty.
    Is this May 5th and the 6th, both nights ?

    I dont know if it means the nite of the 5th and morning of the 6th or both nights. And the site I went to had it as 5-6. Guess its anybodys guess. Unfortunately from the way the moon will rise it will make it harder to view. Youre supposed to be able to see some tho. I love meteor showers. I dont sleep well at night anyway so I might as well give it a try. Hope you get to see something!

    Youre asking me? How should I know? LOL . Actually I have to ask the hubbanator. He can point out a lot of the constellations on a good night. I have to get my trusty diagram out and by the time I figure it out the suns coming up! The swimming in circles fish
