Re: Orionid Meteor Shower Saturday Night 20 Oct

I was anchored off of Leadenham Creek in the Choptank area Saturday night. I woke up at 5 to do an anchor check, which is convenient from our V berth because you can just stand up through the forward hatch, and there Orion was right in front of me! I watched for a couple of minutes and saw two meteorites off Orion's left shoulder. Then the nippy air got the better of me and it was back to sleep. But thanks for the heads up, WnW! I wouldn't have looked otherwise.
