    This poll came a day too late. We have already missed the peak of this years Quadrantids Meteor Shower. Now we will have to wait till April...

    A happy new year to you all! Rata

    Yes, I do, when I can. I also periodically hang out at the stargazers clubs in Vulcan and Jasper Alberta.

    My favourite thing though is to drive way up into the mountains and observe the Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights). I often plan long camping trips in the mountains when the Kp index is relatively high, signalling that the Northern Lights are possible or sometimes even likely.

    I prefere to bathe when meteors shower..

    It was 1998 when with friends we passed all the night in free thermal pools of Bagnaccio near Viterbo watching 1998 Leonids meteor sworm: during all the night passed bolids like this one..

    What to add?

    I'd like to watch meteor showers, but I always forget they're happening. So, I had to choose "No".
      No i do not watch you shower.

    Between cloud cover and light pollution, there is seldom anything to see in my area, but I still give it a casual try.
