I start every day in a hot tub with my first cup of coffee. I see shooting stars almost every day. ( there really not rare, just most people don't watch the night sky for more than a moment). I love 'events' like these, as long as they are 2 million miles away or more. I am certain of one thing, it's not if, but when one does hit us again. Just hopefully it won't be in my lifetime. It was pretty cool when shumaker/levy hit Jupiter a few years back. It would have been big enough to make cockroaches king of this planet. Glad Jupiter has a lot more gravity than us. It is kind of the inner planets fly swatter protector.

I wonder if there's been any headway on that dark planet? Mathematically, it's there, they just haven't seen it yet. But, if it's orbit is determined, we could identify it as causing our rather periodic extinctions (i.e. in the form of passengers it picks up on the way).
