Leonid Didn't Pan Out

November 21, 2002

The Leonid meteor storm was a total bust! I was in the desert just outside the city of Palm Springs from 1:30 to 4 a.m. Tuesday expecting to see the light show of the century (up to 6,000 shooting stars in one hour).

All I could see were a bright moon, three fluttering bats, one flying owl, a possible UFO and one wimpy shooting star. I am definitely canceling my star party in the year 2098, when the next Leonid meteor storm hits the Earth.
