    There are 100's of thousands of sporadic meteors per day. I use to listen to them on radio waves. Basically you point an antenna at a far distant radio station you can not normally get. When a meteor enters the atmosphere between you and the station, the station comes in clear as day for a up to a second or so.

    Most of the activity is in the morning. In the evening your location is turning away from the meteors and they have to catch up. In the morning your location is turning into the likely path of the meteors. If you have clear dark skies, and or so inclined to get up before dawn, you can see about ten shooting stars per hour.

    It is possible to read the history of this country as one long struggle to extend the liberties established in our Constitution to everyone in America. - Molly Ivins
