The wonder lives yet

As Chrissy Hinde Oscar Wilde said, we are all of us in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.

For those of the latter ilk, this week has delivered at least a couple of treats.

Meteor shower to brighten night skies

Stargazers have the chance to spot a meteor shower in the skies tonight.

If the clouds hold off, the annual Geminids meteor shower will be visible to the naked eye from about midnight until dawn.

And it isn’t even Meteorite Monday (remember that?).

Also, Phillip Adams on Late Night Live interviews the esteemed Ann Druyan, co-author with (and widow of) the esteemed Carl Sagan. You can download and hear the podcast from here.
