This weekend brings the Leonid Meteor Shower, and not only is the Earth passing straight through one of the sometimes evasive debris fields, but folks in Hawaii, Australia, and the western Pacific are expected to have the best view.

I’m not sure if I’m going to see anything — we live in the city, and getting to a dark side of the island would require sneaking out ’round midnight with a sleeping toddler — but I’m excited anway.
