The Heavens Declare the Glory of God, and the Firmament His Handiwork

Sunday evening found our family in the middle of the baseball field at the park behind our house.  And we weren't playing baseball. We were staring at the sky watching fourteen different meteors from Halley's Comet streak across the sky.  It was spectacular.  They turned bright yellow and orange, curved their paths, and eventually burned out.  Upon researching this, we discovered that this was just a preview.  The 2016 Orionoid Meteor Shower peaks on Thursday night.  For more information including the best times to see it and the direction from which the meteors will appear, click below.                        Happy star (or meteor) gazing!
