- Meteor showers are common - appearing every few weeks throughout
the year. The trick is to know which are the major shows, what
days, direction, time of night, and location to view them. Geminids
and Perseids are the reliables; Leonids is famous but
temperamental; Quadrantics are the dark horse. Follow them on
meteor calendar, learn their characters, avoid the moon and light
pollution, wait past mindnight for the bugs-on-the-windshield
effect, and bring a cup of hot chocolate.

- Coursera focuses on college-level courses, although some
introductory courses may be suitable for high school students. It
strikes a balance between informal, free, and open web education,
while offering the formal structure of scheduling, syllabus,
quality, and - if the student chooses - to pay for certification.
Courses are contributed by a consortium of universities. The
Coursera site offers a straight forward browsing capability to
search for courses.
