"Meteors and me"

Subject: Meteors and me

I couldn't sleep that night [of the meteor shower]: I am on some new antibiotic that makes me a bit hyper. So at one, one thirty, then two, I went out to look up at the sky, and there they were, the Leonids. What amazed me were the long tails some of them had. The meteors are apparently rather small in themselves; it's their speed that makes them so visible. (I guess the message is to slow down unless you want to be noticed.) Savya came out too and actually stayed out after me for a bit. We slept in the next morning. But we have seen many celestial sights up here: The Hales Comet, the Hale Bopp comet, and others I forget. We even thought of buying a telescope, but the field of vision is much too narrow for us. We want the entire sky to float around in. Anyway, thanks. Happy Thanks Giving. Glad you could hear the [e-mail greeting] card [I sent]! richard
