Mars and a meteor (Bradford)

Popped out, just for a second, to see what I could see. From inside, the southern sky over the trees looked a dark violet. Ah, was it clear, after such a grey day? Yes, stars were visible from the deck, even to my bleached eyes. I moved further away from the house, clearing the upper deck. Bingo! Mars! Bright and orange. I immediately thought of the RASCals down at Long Sault. Good for them. And then, suddenly, a short meteor, near zenith, heading south-east. Boom. Nice little treat. Oh, to be out here now... but I was hazy from tryptophan. And I have a big day tomorrow...
