It is always a case of being in the right place at the right time. Last night, I walked outside and caught a shooting star streaking down towards the Northeast, with a bright golden tail as it passed through our atmosphere. Just before it reached the horizon, it began to break up and fizzle out. This is the second shooting star I have seen in the past 14 months, with the prior one being Halloween night 2005. So if you are ever out at night, especially when it is clear, remember to look up in the sky and keep an eye out. You never know what you might see.
