Here's something to do while waiting for the next satellite pass ...
http://spaceweather.com/ has an audio feed of the meteor pings from the
Ursid Meteor Shower as they pass through the Air Force Space Surveillance
Radar in Texas. Note: the Ursid radiant is circumpolar (always up) over the
radar so the echoes may be heard at any hour, night or day. I've heard 4
pings over the past 45 minutes of listening this morning.
