    Re: Meteor Shower Tonight

    what time?


    There are not many crowds or places in the country that have a better impact on the game than at Iowa State. The Cyclone fans are truly a sixth man. The place is so loud and always a fantastic crowd." - Former Kansas and current North Carolina head coach Roy Williams

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