Fortunately, there are two minor peaks of the shower expected this coming night, as the earth passes through the residue left by the 1333 and 1733 trails of the comet. The first, at about 10:42 pm PST will occur before the half moon has set, but the second will not arrive until about 1:49 am PST. Friday is expected to be cloudy, so the chances of fully clear sky late tonight are iffy. Still, I intend to remember this time!
But, oy, it is cold out there, even for November!
