About

Hello Meteor Gazers,

Since the inception of this site I have been blessed to share in the enthusiasm of other meteor gazers. I have read hundreds of your comments and most likely responded to all of you. If you can’t find the information here that you are looking for please ask a question by commenting on one of my many blog posts. I’m here to help!

MeteorBlog is a website dedicated to talking about Meteors and Meteor Showers. I always had some interest in astronomy and watched some cool meteor showers when I was a kid.  This website is a learning process for me as well as you.  I am constantly doing research on one of my favorite hobbies, meteor shower gazing!  I am the guy that is outside at night looking up into the heavens watching for some type of natural phenomenon to occur.  I plan to add a lot more to the site.


If you like the site, please Buy Me a Cup of Coffee by using the “A Coffee for Meteor Mark” section on the right side of the page. Thank you to everyone who has already commented on the site, your contributions and questions are greatly appreciated.  Please bookmark the site, join the mailing list and check with me each month. It is my pleasure knowing that you visited the site and will respond to every comment I can.
