Just came back from trying to see a Meteor Shower tonight with Andy. The last time we tried to see one, it was foggy as hell and we couldn't see anything. Tonight was a lot clearer, we went up to Land's End and could actually see a bunch of stars. We were out there for almost an hour and I didn't see shit! Andy saw two trails; the sky must hate me. As I was laying there I heard a "seagull" noise, but.. seagulls don't come out at night right? Must have been something (or someone?) else haha. Anyways, we were about to leave... and suddenly! I see a burst of light flying across the sky! ...It was Andy flicking his cigarette.
Next time, sky.. next time.
So we were wondering if there was a difference between meteor showers and a falling star. Turns out, they're the same. Falling stars aren't stars. They're caused by cosmic debris or rocks (meteoroid) entering the earth's atmosphere and burning up. Cool.
