Last night the universal sky was crystal clear over Calhoun, stars and galaxies visible from one horizon to another.

November is the month the Leonid meteor showers hit the earth, visible the last two nights in the dark of the Calhoun skies.

The showers will peak on November 17, unfortunately during daylight hours.

The Leonids have caused quite a stir in North America, including a spectuclar bombardment in 1833.

With Calhoun being one of the darkest places in Anerica (lack of electrical illumination), looking at the Leonids and the universal sky is one of the rewards living in the place.
