    What kind of area are you in/how far from light sources. I'm in Urbandale and haven't seen anything yet.

    Re: Meteor Shower Tonight

    Just went outside and stood in the middle of my yard for 5 minutes with my head cranked up to the sky, I saw 1 meteor and wished for a championship at ISU. It better come true.
