Shooting stars passing tonight...

Well, we are passing through particles in space, visible around midnight tonight.
The shower comes about each year as the Earth passes through the path of an asteroid called 3200 Phaethon.

Hopefully the visibility will be good tonight. I climbed to Felsenegg during the Leonid shower just to have the fog roll in and spoil my fun...
