While looking for additional information regarding the meteor shower, I went to www.spaceweather.com. Good info on viewing area and time. Of possible interest to RadSafers, I noticed that they have updated their homepage with a "Cosmic Rays in the Atmosphere" section as you scroll down the homepage. They send a weather balloon to the stratosphere about once a week and one of the instruments is a radiation detector. They provide a graph with dose information (X times BKGD in California) at altitudes of 25,000 ft, 40,000 ft, and stratosphere.

Are you a sky watcher? This evening, the year's best meteor shower meets the year's brightest full Moon.
Best and a great Christmas wish to all,
