Spectacular Leonid Meteor Shower to Light Up the Skies this Weekend

Eyes on the Skies! Earth is approching a stream of debris from comet Tempel-Tuttle, source of the annual Leonid meteor shower. Forecasters expect the shower to peak on Nov. 17th and 18th with as many as 15 meteors per hour visible in bright moonlight.

The Leonids are famous for storming. As often as a few times each century, Earth hits a dense filament of Tempel-Tuttle's dusty debris, causing thousands of meteors per hour to stream out of the constellation Leo. Such a display in 1833 kickstarted modern meteor astronomy with an outburst of 100,000 Leonids per hour. Many readers still remember the Leonid fireballs of 1998 and the meteor storms of 1999, 2001 and 2002.

The best time to look is during the hours before dawn on Saturday, Nov. 17th, and Sunday, Nov. 18th, when the Lion is high in the eastern sky.

Bonus: If you're up before sunrise, check out Venus near the bright star Spica as well as newly-discovered Comet Machholz-Fujikawa-Iwamoto (C/2018 V1) in the constellation Virgo.
Also comet 46P/Wirtanen is around the corner. At the time you need a small telescope or binoculars to see it late in the evening at your southern sky.

Clear Skies Everyone!

Google traffic redirected to China (via Nigeria) 'in error'
BGP SNAFU or PRC SOP?
#Google went off the air for a couple of hours earlier this week. Its traffic seemed to disappear into a black hole, thanks to a bad #BGP announcement.

But the route went to China, which got people wondering. A Nigerian ISP said it was its fat-finger fault, but that explanation hasn’t satisfied everyone.

Could there be a more worrying explanation? In this week’s #SecurityBlogwatch at #TechBeacon, +Richi Jennings makes like Bobby Vee.

I have come to judge people on the way the argue.

After quite some time I have come to realise that often,
its not what perspective or opinion which is considered 'right' or 'wrong' or even which one you actually end up agreeing with or/and connecting with, but more the way the argument is put forth by each person. This is what determines respect and worth of a person, particularly so in the social media scene where you may never physically meet the person.
Its when you can see the reasons and justifications of the other side and it is put forward in a way that encourages open minded debate with respect have you reached a acceptable level of civility.

Civility and restraint have seem to have been lost somewhere along the way and there are too many people acting like boneheads and they seem to be attracted to photography communities ;)
