By 2029 we should have a start of a base on the Moon. So maybe observations can be made from there. If not I am hoping the ISS is still in use ( or hopefully expanded) so as to get a few good pictures.

That'd be awesome to witness, the last time I saw anything meteor related was that meteor shower that broke up in the atmosphere and went spreading across our melbournian skies i think it was in 1999 or 98?, god it was beautiful though, im never going to forget that all of the meteorites had beautiful mutli-coloured tails... *runs off to find internet pictures*
