Meteor Shower last night

Last night we had a great light show in the backyard. For the report see this link.

The Geminid Meteor Shower produced up to 100 meteors per hour.

So, we were outside and I saw several meteors and one satellite.  The satellite was moving east to west, but was probably fixed in space as the Earth spins eastward.

For more information about these astronomical light shows, see here.

Pretty cool eh?
