@soyjoy222: I see them a lot (small city) and always make a wish, although I’ve heard you need to repeat the wish 3 times. Here’s a TIP:

December 13-15th theres a huge meteor shower it’s strongest is the 14th (some are so bright you can see them in the middle of the city), you literally run out of wishes.

That’s so cool! I’ve seen a handful of shooting stars in my life and I always get just as excited as ever because they’re awesome!

i love shooting stars and i’ve seen several over the course of my life! i always make a wish

one year my dad woke all of us kids up in the middle of the night and brought us outside in the cul-de-sac to watch a meteor shower – it was in the top 3 most amazing things i’ve EVER seen in my life. There were probably 30 shooting stars a minute.  i think this particular shower was the Leonids which happen in November every year and I have tried year after year to see something like this again but havent. After some research i found out it was the biggest meteor shower in years, which would make sense as to why i havent seen it to that extent again. I still check out when the meteor showers are and try and get up and at least look out the window to see if i see antyhing and usually ill see a few here and there if i look long enough.

 Next one is Dec. 13-15th – the geminids. yeah im a nerd.

supposed to be a full moon which might make it difficult to see but they say 30-40 a minute – best time to see is after midnight, in the early hours of the 14th and 15th.

This is in spanish but the dates are understandable: http://astronomia.org/2011/calfugaces.html

The colors go from bright blue (Big shower) to gray (barely visible).  I wait every year for the Geminidas Dec14th but this year there’ll be a los of moon (89%) so it might be hard to watch.

That’s so awesome!  I love seeing them, they make me feel so little (does that make sense)?  My birthday is on Dec.13th, I will definitely have to look UP!

My parents live in the middle of nowhere so I saw them quite frequently growing up. They still leave me in awe every time I see one. 🙂 There is also Perseids meteor shower in August. I always try to catch that one!

I have to say the most amazing experience was when I saw the Northern Lights!!

@TinyTina: I’d love to see the northern lights but I’m too far south for that. I still remember watching the Haley-Boop comet while I was little. Only 45 years till Haley comet comes back!!
