For a total change of pace...

There will be an intense meteor storm on the evening of November 21 (or morning of November 22, depending on where you are).  It will only last 30-45 minutes and could produce meteors at the rate of 400 per hour.

Should you be paying attention, also tune your FM radio to an empty frequency and turn up the volume a bit.  You may be listening to FM radio stations from 500-800 miles away while the storm lasts.  The meteor trails cause the atmosphere to ionize, allowing radio signals to bounce back to Earth.  Works for lower-frequency TV channels as well.  One of my insane hobbies, as is banging my head against table tops .
