Geminids and Felines
Late last night my mom and I decided to go watch the Geminid meteor shower since it was clear, dark, and semi-warm for this time of year. We always used to watch the Perseids before school started in August, but with weather and internships and lots of other stuff, we haven’t done it in years. The geminids aren’t as numerous as the Perseids, but they are slower, bigger, and burn up nice and slow so they are easier to see. We went to Tinkers Creek on Old Mill road to escape the city light and though there were some clouds, it was an okay show. We saw two really good ones and a bunch others before it got too cold. It’s been a long time since I got to see some good meteors.
Also there was a stray kitten that came up to us and was even sitting on my lap before we got up to leave. It’s fur was pretty rough and there weren’t any houses around so I dont think it belongs to anyone. We felt bad to leave it alone in the winter so we brought it home and it’s in the garage. I’ll take it to a shelter today. Pretty nice cat for a stray. It should get a nice home.
