    2032. . .yet another reason not to commit suicide.

    “Time to get up and milk the cows, Papa! Sun’s on the rise!”
    “Aw, heck, Mama! I just now came to bed!”

  6. JeffinBville

    I caught the last one on a clear night upstate in NY. It will never be forgotten.

    Wow, that would have been incredible! I’ve only seen one decent meteor shower a few years ago in the countryside of the US. It was pretty cool we saw several really good fireballs, maybe like 10 or so every 30 minutes though. There was still enough light pollution that the horizons around us were faintly lit up, so it wasn’t as impressive as I assume the middle of the ocean or even a few desolate areas of the US can be. I really hate that most people in and too near cities never get to see just how incredible the night sky looks away from city lights.

    This event inspired a great Christian revival throughout the United States because so many people saw the event of “the stars falling” and thought it meant the end of the world. Remember when there was not so much artificial lighting? However they could have looked up the next night and found all of the stars still in place.

  9. Eucalypticaz

    I don’t like shorts

  10. Amiel Espena

    meteor showers are cool unless the meteors are 5km wide

  11. TurboSol

    Why have I never heard about this?!?

  12. Blue Sky Thinking

    Misleading clickbait. Nothing to see here folks, just the guy waffling on. No ACTUAL FOOTAGE!! 👎👎

  13. psammiad

    Wtf, why is this in a portrait phonescreen format?! That’s a down thumb from me!

  14. ToyFREAKS

    I’m setting a reminder right now!

  15. Sillocan

    Seeing a meteor storm is one of my biggest dreams. I get so excited thinking about one.

  16. LadyK1903

    I literally thought you’ll say “Subscribe to be notified in 11 years” 😂😂😂😂 cause that would be hilarious!

  17. online12plus

    imagine if the meteor shower happened today with all of our sophisticated cameras. but nothing beats seeing it with your own eyes

  18. ArchangelExile

    Interesting… 🤔

  19. Filippo Franzato

    Personally I like very much theese short but informative videos! P. S. Your normal videos quality is rising remarkably! That’s very good! Please Keep up this channel

  20. Aadharsh 7

    11 years to go. Can’t wait.

  21. Anne Noname

    Make a wish.
    100,000 times.
    Be Disappointed
    100,000 times
    Wait 33 more years.

  22. Raphaël Casimir

    So faaast (the pace)

  23. Tuljan

    Please don’t make these shorts, they look plain ugly

  24. Big Sarge

    I enjoy these fascinating shorts!

  25. ThijmenDF

    I’ve gotta be honest, I much more prefer the normal styled videos over these “shorts”. Partly because you seem to rush the content as well as the aspect ratio.

  26. LE0NSKA

    huh.. better set a timer then

  27. Dillon de Jong

    I love your content but thats also why id like longer videos!

  28. CarthagoMike

    Very spectacular the meteor shower might have been,
    but when represented in a phone aspect ratio, not very spectacular it will seem.

  29. Shag Wellington

    Wish I could have seen it.

  30. Josh Rieke

    what the hell with this vertical video format??? yuckkkk

  31. Hicham Mohsen

    Please don’t do shorts :(

  32. thanasis bamidis

    According to wikipedia the peak was 100.000/hr, with a total of about 240.000 during the 9hrs.

  33. Adrian Larsen

    Anyone know what the last painting in the vid is called?

  34. ItsMeHammie

    I saw this meteor shower in Nov 2020. We saw on average 2 per minute. It was spectacular

  35. Freaky Leek

    Witnesses in North America also often claim that they see aliens in the sky, so I would be sceptical of basing numbers on little more than the claims of their great grandparents.

  36. james cox

    can you imagine what it must be like to watch the points of light that never move seemingly fall as a massive rate with out knowing whats really going on? must have been scary.

  37. A3Kr0n

    In 2032? Can you set a reminder for us, I might forget.

  38. Ewan Cartwright

    What’s the explanation for this? Passing closer than usual to the nucleus of the debris cloud?

  39. Tyrandus

    Try to imagine seeing roughly 27 meteors *per second* That is what 100,000 meteors per hour would look like.

  40. David Sharphead

    It’s funny how the uneducated always assume its Judgment Day

  41. Phuk Hyutoob

    Yay something that happened over a century ago.

  42. S. Pak

    That would have been awesome to see but the 2001 was pretty good as well

  43. Kal Random

    We missed a close call for a reset.

  44. Mukesh Kumar

    Do we have any records from the meteor storm of 1999? Or 1967?

  45. Bjarne S.

    Would be a good video if rotated 90°

  46. Mary Wright

    Those people must have been terrified

  47. Max Rocha

    The length of this video is homophobic.

  48. moonstar

    Will the one in 2032 also have 100,000 meteors per hour, or is it still unknown (if not, how many)? If it does have that many, it’ll be so epic

  49. G P

    Will it be possible to see it from anywhere on Earth or just a specific location?

  50. srqs srqs

    People are excited on 2032. But it does not mean what happened in 1833 will happen. Probably just like what happened last cycle.

  51. Kyle Pollina

    Can you do a video on the Temple/Tuttle comet? Did the 2020 comet come from this meteor stream?

  52. Doxie Lain

    I saw a storm in 2001, and it was one of the more amazing things I’ve seen in my entire life.

  53. Scott Margreiter


  54. Antonio Salas Martinez

    Science: earth passing thru comet remnants
    Religious nuts: end of the world,

  59. Mezelf Om dat hetkan

    Its now in my agenda thank you

  60. thunder sheild

    Do you have any sources on where to find out more about this? I’ve been looking around on the internet but haven’t found anything very conclusive other than Wikipedia saying there is a storm about every 33 years.

  61. NorthernChev

    Comment applied.

  62. james browning

    Thanks ill be dead by then

  63. kirby march barcena

    The Leonids seem very fast…like how fast this video ends.

  64. S S

    Please no more shorts.. Just make a small youtube video.. Please… I can’t pause or control these types of things, youtube is trying awful tiktok and Instagram nonsense I think

  65. Mike G

    Note to self – Exchange thin tin foil hat for a much thicker tin foil hat before 2032.

  66. Scott Meyer

    The 2002 Leonids was pretty good. I remember being able to see them from my back yard in Las Vegas.

  67. Eric Romano

    Oh man I wish I could have seen that. Time to mark 2032 in my calendar.

  68. Ben Dover

    I also experienced a meteor storm.

    But it was after eating spicy indian food and released a meteor shower in the toilet for about 30 minutes

  69. A guy with an Anime profi

    thanks for the reminder, hope i’ll remember till 2032

  70. noeldenever

    While I, a plebeian, couldn’t think past getting through 2021…sky enthusiasts are already thinking of 2032. Lets hope we all survive to watch this meteor shower. Another worthy reason to stay alive.

  71. Muonium

    what percentage of Earth’s satellites would be destroyed if the 1833 meteor storm happened again?

  72. Adam

    Big fan can you say hi?

  73. Quietteish T

  74. Astrum Brasil
