My Moravian College astronomy students were recently on a field experience to Shooting Star Farm, est of Hellertown, Pl. There I I* ,lma% " were six high-end telescopes on the field supported by friends and members of the Lehigh Valley Amater Astronomical Society, and I ! 'r  * about 30 students in small clusters enthusiastically waiting their turns at the various eyepieces to glirnps, their real-time views of the !1  i ,-, universe.At6:45p.m.asuppyaunhtthenternatinaSpaeStatinfrmWapssand,VAvis)efrmPAwassmbbed ! ! ,IF but students were treated to a beautiful and bright five minute flyover of the ISS during twilight. Ineidentfly, that same supply rocket | I exploded after liftoffthe following evening, October 28. When allwas said and done, some very cold tat happy students left about ! ! 8:50 p.m. Five minutes later, those still present on the field were treated to a beautiful, bright, slow moving and flickering aooting star coming up from ! | the east. It was undoubtedly a member of the Tanrid stream. Most meteors observed are faster and fainter, but the Taurid have uniquely brighter and il "lazier" characteristics. If you are going to spend a few hours viewing the Taurids, avoid the bright moon. Dress warmlyprotecting head, hands, and i feet. Once any of these extremities become cold, you e doomed. Observers should view east before midnight, and overhad after that time. The entire I month of November is good for Taurids, but these meteors are far and few between, so you may bewatching for a half-bur or more before catching | your first event. However, seeing a piece of space dust catch frictional heat from Earth's atmosphere, and set a tube bfr glowingbrightly, which is ! the meteor phenomenon, can be a mind-blowing experience. I have no problem reliving my most recent Taurid experienc or a Taurid that I saw over 40 years ago looking like a distant Roman candle sputtering and sparking to its brilliant death, ; ."
