Do you like to look at things falling out of the sky? LoCO does! So here is the 2015 list of when the most traditionally visable meteor showers are (approximately) gonna happen:

Quadrantids Jan. 3 Moon view most of the night
Lyrids April 21/22   Moon sets after midnight
Eta Aquarids    May 5 Full Moon
Perseids Aug. 12 Moon rises at dawn
Orionids Oct. 21 Moon sets after midnight
Leonids Nov. 17 Moon sets in late evening
Geminids Dec. 13 Moon sets in early evening

Note: Brighter moons make it hard to see meteors, so we’ve included what that pesky orb will be doing during shower times. Also, conventional wisdom holds that the best place to view is up Kneeland-way.

Have fun looking up, HumCo!


LoCO Earth is a place for you to get the weather, and also — here in the comment threads — to scream into the void about whatever it is that is bothering you on the national scene. We like for that to happen over here, rather than underneath a story that is about something that is actually happening in Humboldt County.

If you, too, wish to scream, you may choose your flavor of anguish with the “LoCO Repubs!” or “LoCO Dems!” buttons. You might find people there to support you through this crisis!

If you’re just here to get the weather, then you need take no action.
