In the wee hours of Wednesday morning, the Quadrantid meteor shower should be visible in the sky at about three a.m. EST.
Now, if you read that and didn’t squirm (just a little), or consider whether or not you shouldn’t watch ( just for a moment), then you obviously are not a fan of John Wyndham’s 1951 British sci-fi classic, The Day of the Triffids. In this vivid apocalyptic tale, a meteor shower blinds most of humanity, paving the way for the giant flesh-eating, moving plants, Triffids, to prey on the survivors. After reading this one, you will never view a meteor shower OR your garden in the same way again!
Don’t you just hate it when life starts imitating art?
