it's not a meteor shower tonight is it? I just went outside for a few minutes and saw 4 in a row, all in different spots of the NE sky

it's probably not a meteor shower now, but post here whenever it is and we can discuss it here!

Probably UFOs. I grew up in Pitt County and we spotted UFOs all the freakin' time. Seriously.

RD. You are in a great spot for sky watching. I have always attributed UFO sightings to the nearby military bases. And aliens.

30-60 per hour? that can't be right. That's less than one a minute. I've seen more than that the last couple of nights and that was supposed to be before the peak.

"A dense fog advisory remains in effect until 9 am EST this morning.

Dense fog covers a large part of central North Carolina early this morning. The visibility is expected to remain poor through mid morning. The visibility should begin to improve after 9 am.

Across the northern Piedmont...the dense fog combined with temperatures hovering near freezing may cause slick spots to develop on roadways especially bridges and overpasses."
