Just took a look outside and we have a few breaks in the clouds. I wonder if I can get a picture?

It was quite a show. I'm down in Dallas, Tx. There is a lot of light pollution from the city and the airport, but you could clearly see the larger streaks. One was so big you could see the contrail for almost 5 minutes.

Plus, it was 75 degrees and lovely to be outside.

Remind me why I live in Maine?
