Stargazing: Night of the Shooting Stars

So we will see the night's sky light up with this rare form of meteor shower! Supposedly it 's going to look like a group of shooting stars.

Perhaps the most dramatic sky event in 2014 could come at the start of the Memorial Day weekend. In the predawn hours of Saturday, May 24, our planet is expected to sweep through a great number of dusty trails left behind in space by the small comet P/209 LINEAR.

This unusual cosmic interaction might possibly result in an amazing, albeit brief display of meteors — popularly known as "shooting stars" — perhaps numbering in the many dozens …or even hundreds per hour. Nobody knows exactly how many meteors will be seen, but several meteor scientists believe that because the particles will be unusually large, the meteors will be outstandingly bright.

    Sounds like a wonderful event. So sorry I cannot join you, as I have theater tickets that night. But I will be with you in energy and spirit.

    I'll be up in Big Bear that night, otherwise I would definitely be there! This is such a great idea, let's do it again. I saw so many shooting stars at the last event I went to, I can't imagine how many great things I would see with all of your collective energies!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
