i have seen only one in my 19 years of living. it was a really an unexpected moment because i was just 9 years old then and i was on my way home from a friend's house. it was just the right time when i looked up in the sky and i saw a shooting star! it was really one of the most unforgettable moments of my childhood because i am really mystified with astronomy then. :)

I am 27 and have only seen 2 shooting stars. I find that weird because my parents would always take us shopping every weekend and it would be dark out by the time we were driving back. I'd always stare at the sky but I never saw any. The first one I saw was when I was sitting in a friends car when I was 16. I never saw another one until I was on a date with a guy a few weeks back and we were sitting in his truck before I left to go home and both of us saw it at the same time. I never thought anything of it until right now. I dont believe in making wishes so I wouldnt have bothered to do that but it was cool that on such a wonderful date I got to see a shooting star at the end.

You're so lucky, at least once. I've never seen one till now. I'm longing for meet one sometime. That might be very beautiful and mysterious, I think. I've heard that if you see one, make a wish then it comes true. Do you hear before? Have you made wish that time? Have a niced day! :)

Not in my whole life, wish I could see someday...that's one of my greatest desires just to see a shooting star even just once. :-)

They are very exciting to see and watch. I have been in a field with no lights and far away from the city to reduce the effects of the city lights. We then lay down on our backs and stare at the sky. I was able to see shooting stars but also some satalites. Very cool

Yes I've seen a couple and they are so cool. They are beautiful and look just great falling though the sky.
