I used starwalk on my iPhone and was surprised how bright Jupiter was. Last night was a really really really clear night, and I live in the Pgh city limits.

Went out for about 10 minutes around 11pm and saw 2 bright ones and 2 dim ones. Then went in since I was in bare feet and pajamas.

Those are not meteors. It's just superman doing his buisness since he can't on earth. Plumbing systems can not support his feces.

Friendly reminder, the Perseid meteor shower peaks Sunday night around 3:30-4 AM. Up to 80 meteors an hour with more fireballs than usual. Forecast for PGH is clear to partly cloudy as of right now.

Rare First Time Meteor Shower

http://m.wearecentralpa.com/display/12093#/display/12093/story/120c336d084d01c1d6b2ba9d3eea8ecb

As this Memorial Day weekend approaches be sure to keep a sharp eye on the sky as a rare and major meteor shower is expected to occur this Friday night (May 23rd) through Saturday morning. 
According to NASA a large meteor shower known as ‘The Camelopardlids Meteor Shower’ will put on quite a show in the night sky peaking early Saturday between two and four in the morning.
