What did you see Jake? There were 2 meteor showers going on this week. On Sunday night I looked out my kitchen window & saw 6 meteors within about 10 minutes. Was it a meteor you saw? I wonder if Miramar is doing any testing at night?

Sweet! I saw this on my way to work Tuesday AM, as I approached Mission Gorge road from 52w! Thought it was just a really big/bright shooting star or something! Pretty cool to think it may have been a meteor!
