Most memorable:
1) The Leonids this fall was a remarkable delight. I was dazzled by the Leonids in 1966 up in Tompkins County, NY. That episode was paltry compared to this years event.
2) About 10 years ago, we had an alignment of 7 planets. My cousin and I canoed on the meadows a couple of hours before dawn to take it in. The scene in the sky and the feeling on the meadows that morning gave me an unforgetable haunting memory.
3) The meteor shower we have in August, ?Persieds?, I caught that one in l969 on the shores of Lake Mead, lying on the warm asphalt, next to the new missus (it was out honeymoon), and 2 other nubile young ladies who'd never seen a shooting star.
