If you note the time when you received the e-mail notification, you aren’t seeing things wrong. We actually chose to get up at this bizarre hour to see the quadrantid meteor shower. Despite it being 19° when we got up, we bundled up, braved the cold, and looked to the heavens. The girls’ peripheral vision must be better than mine as they saw many more than I did. Jenna and Lauren both saw about the average of one per minute that we read one might see.
I took the camera, but I didn’t manage to capture streaks in the direction I had the camera pointing. I need a wider angle lens I suppose.
Since we are all wide awake, I suppose we might as well start the day and take a nap later on.
