 South Florida’s Palm Beach County is a slice of heaven where you can exercise outside, essentially, any time of year.  However, this time of year is almost too good to be true not to escape the gym and get outside. Nature is a perfect playground.

Fireball Alert: No, not “that” Fireball!  Look up in the Jupiter evening sky tonight to hopefully, witness a celestial fireball. November is a busy month for the night sky.  A fireball is an alternative term for a very bright meteor, generally brighter than magnitude -4, which is about the same magnitude of the brightest planet, Venus, in the morning or evening sky.  Then there is a bolide.
