Day 571 — Meteors — Haibun Journey Beauty Each Day

Today’s beauty was found two am, I was out watching the Orionids meteor shower. Due to the cold I didn’t stay out too long but saw a number of small meters and once giant blazing one. The Orionids are meteoroids that are left over from Haley’s comet which can be traced back as far as 240 BC. Anyway if you get a moment and have a darkened area to sit out bundle up and enjoy the spectacular view. Should be better than 2016 since their is no bright moon to contend with.
