It's apparently going on all week. Caught some last night...beautiful stuff.

Not helping my sleeping schedule, however.

Thanks for posting about this. I wasn't aware of it going on right now.

I searched a little online and found that the peak is supposed to be Thursday midnight into Friday, til 3am. I'm not sure if I can stay up that late - lol !!

You're welcome! Yeah, our meteorologist said tomorrow night will be the strongest with up to 100 an hour.

You can do it! You can stay up! It'll be so worth it.

I say that, but I have the opposite schedule of most people so...not a huge difference than usual.
