Any of you like astrology because if you do then tonight your night.

Ohhh, i wonder if there is any chance of that in the USA... hopefully so, because i need to spend a night in my back yard (its been about a week since i have).

Not to hijack anything, but i heard somewhere that Mars is going to be the closest its ever been on the 27th of august? has anyone else heard of this?

I went to a camp in the middle of nowhere this past week, the stars there were great. Saw a few shooting stars Doesn't compare to when I went backpacking in New Mexico in the middle of the wilderness though. That was simple amazing. You could see everything, shooting stars were all over the place.

The article says they will be most visible in North America and Europe...even if you're in a big city.

Only 9 PM here, still a little too bright to see much. It's supposed to go 'til sunrise over in the U.K., so something like 1 AM here.
