eyes on the east

I'm home tonight with a kidlet who's under the weather. But on the upside, she's not feeling like bouncing around a whole lot, which is perfect for watching for meteors. She's too sick to go out in the cold, but we went to big sister's room for the perfect east-facing window. We didn't see much - even a sick 5-year-old can only pay attention so long, and it's a bit early; clouds will roll in later and keep us from seeing the best of it. But it was a nice diversion anyway.

If you feel like skywatching tonight, here's some more information on the Leonid meteor shower.
