Dec 7/8 Meteors (or should I say, lack of meteors)

Clouds and rain spoiled the observing last night and tonight may bring more of the same. Conditions should improve by Tuesday evening. Unfortunately, it looks like the southwest US may be hit by a much stronger storm starting this weekend, just in time for the peak of the Geminids.

    i saw a meteor when i was at disneyland (anaheim, ca). it seemed pretty bright. i was surprised to see one in such a light area (city and disneyland). i have no idea what direction it was going (not sure where in dland i was at the time). been thinking of it. cool to find this site. i saw another meteor a month or two ago but didn’t note it. i’ll keep this place in mind…
