All the Fireworks May Not Be on the Football Field Tonight

A meteor lit up the Central Texas sky last night, brighter than the vast majority of  “shooting stars” that we get to see. It came earlier than expected, witnessed by many drivers in the area at about 9:22pm.  The meteor is part of what is known as the Leonid meteor shower which takes place in mid-November every year. It’s supposed to peak out with a real fireworks show this weekend between midnight and dawn.

So-o, if the Badgers are ahead in that ball game tonight about 9 o’clock, we might just see a little celebration in the sky over Merrill Green Stadium.

Either way, if you want to see a good show, stay up late Saturday night if you want to see a good show overhead. It should be especially good out in the country away from the city lights.
