Passengers on planet earth will be traveling through “a gargantuan field of space dirt” tonight – is supposed to give us a madrugada show as the Camelopardalids debris burns up in earth’s atmosphere.
Find a nice dark place and head out between 1:00 AM – 3:00 AM Yucatan time (CDT) May 24’th, for a special treat. … Beach time? … Uaymitun or San Bruno?
