    Yes, I have. I remember several when I was a child and I made the wish. As an adult, I have seen a few.

    Yes, thousands!!  My wife and I went out during a meteor shower a few years back and I lost count somewhere around 700.  It was amazing being out in the country away from city light pollution and watching the night sky come alive.  I had never seen such a meteor shower before, it was awesome.

    The most I'd seen before in one evening was when I was working as a security guard on 3rd shift.was 60 in one hour.  I went out on the roof of the factory I was working at, laid back on a sky light, and watched the show.

    My favorite place to watch shooting stars is down to Shenandoah National Park in Virginia.  We use to camp at Loft Mountain Campground where on a clear night the sky was filled with billions of stars!  Being up over 5000 ft., the air is so clear of pollution the evening sky is so full of stars it's hard to believe there can be that many stars. While out watching the stars one evening up there, I saw a shooting star come from one horizon to the other, finishing in a huge flash/explosion! 

    Our parents use to take us out as children to watch the skies for shooting stars and satellites.  Doing so was always a favorite family activity.

    Once while I was camping with friends, too excited to make a wish, so I just stared in amazement!

    I think I seen one and it was in the corner of my eye. It blew by the sky so fast and bright. I did still make a wish of course.

    Yes, I have seen many.  Thanks for reminding me of all the fun times out in the woods as a young kid always looking up in the sky, it was always special to see a nice shooting star.

    Yeah many times ... while we are on terrace and enjoying the night.

    Or while we are taking night walk after dinner.

    This still thrills me ... and I simply love it.

    Yes I have.  I was fortunate enough to be on the top of a very big hill where all I could see was sky.  It was at night.  I was with my husband and we both saw it.  It was very quick, so im pleased he was there, otherwise I might have started to doubt whether I saw anything at all.  But the memory is so vivid in my mind.  It seemed very close to us, and was really bright.
