Announcing a new Meetup for Coffee Chats for Singles!

What: evening coffee, a walk in the dark, star gazing, and a meteor shower

When: Wednesday, November 17,[masked]:00 PM

Where: (A location has not been chosen yet.)

Possible meetup opportunity.
Three of the best meteor showers we have in any year are coming up. The first is tonight, but we have a full moon so the meteors will be hard to see and in this case even more so cause the meteors will appear to originate from a constellation near the moon.

The next shower is Nov 17. That is mid-week, but it will only be a quarter moon so there are possibilities.

Last of the year is Monday, Dec 13, these are the Geminids, because they appear to come out the constellation Gemini, and are the most reliable shower in terms numbers and regularity of appearance. Also a quarter moon night. Unfortunately, I will be out of town.

There is a good shower in early January and there is no moon that night.

What we most need is clear weather, little or no moon, a weekend (peak shower activity is after midnight), and a large open area away from lights.

If this sounds like fun to you, please respond and we'll see what we can put together.
