    I live in Trevose, which is in Bucks County and is a small suburb outside of Philadelphia where I grew up. For watching meteor showers at night, I go to my backyard. It's not the best spot, but it's better than the city. I can't see right above the horizon due to trees and the surrounding lights, but I can see a fair amount directly above as long as my neighbors' backyard lights aren't on. The best meteor showers are in the middle of winter and I bundle up enough to stay out there sitting for hour stretches at a time. It's so neat to see meteors and earth-orbiting satellites. The only bummer is my house is directly in the path of planes and jets taking off from the Philadelphia airport and they are still low when they pass over my house.

    I live in a village called Glanmire, near Cork city, in Ireland. Tis a nice enough place, lots of wooded areas and a river, and it's only 5 minutes drive into the city, and quite near the coast too.

    I'm from the High Desert, in a little town called Hesperia. It's right next door to Victorville (in fact, I practically live in Victorville). Victorville is where Face to Face are from and where scenes from From Dusk til Dawn and Face/Off where filmed, as well as this music video is filmed http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6LMIucKAWMA].

    Hesperia, however, doesn't have much claim to fame.
