CHRISTMAS SHOPPING SUNSET and BEST POSITION TO OBSERVE TONIGHT’S METEOR SHOWER

Out shopping with Liv and we stopped top see the beautiful sunset at Cape Hedge.

We mentioned the Ursids during this morning’s podcast and in the meantime I found this handy chart. The best time to see the meteor shower is tonight until dawn.
