2012 Orionid Meteor Shower Peaking until Dawn — NASA Hosting Web Chat and Streaming Video

In addition to Orionids, skygazers will see Venus, Mars, the dog star Sirius and bright winter constellations such as Orion, Gemini and Taurus.

According to NASA, the 2012 Orionid meteor shower is peaking this morning.

Best viewing tips? Find dark skies away from city lights, look straight up at the skies, allowing your eyes to take in as much of the sky as possible. Allow your eyes at least 30 minutes to "dark adjust" and see the meteors.

NASA is also hosting a web chat until 3 a.m.

Also view a live Ustream video feed of the Orionid meteor shower showing the skies over Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Ala.

New and old Science A new and Progressive Science shows how Wavevolution, or the transformation from waves to atoms, is the connecting link that closes the circle of science to open our eyes toward new horizons never seen before. The bureaucracy of traditional science prevents the recognition of any event unless certain criteria are first met. The problem of this science is buried deep right in the compilation of these "laws" or criteria introduced by a few scientists in the name of all science and from their erroneous understanding of the relation between Space and Time. This antiquated system of rules also results in misleading theories. One new Awareness will be found in between the winding creativity of the human mind and the rigid logic of numbers. http://www.wikinfo.org/Multilingual/index.php/Wavevolution
