    I stayed in the warm because I didn't expect to see anything, there's so much light around. Might poke my head out of the window now though; are they in any particular direction?

    I'd been wondering when that was on - the 1950's film with Howard Keel bore little relation to the book - the 1980's BBC series was much closer to it and IMO much better to watch.

    Looked for the meteors last night but saw very little. My son saw quite a few on Saturday night though.
    Disappointed
