The Perseid Meteor Shower!!
Beginning tonight, Aug 11th through the 17th, the Perseid meteor shower will be visible in the Northern Hemisphere. We might be able to see more than 60 meteors per hour!! For once, I'm kinda glad I live out in the boonies. Thumbsup

Well, I'll be out there. But how do I keep this pouring rain out of my eyes?No

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

Oh... too bad. Confused Tonight will be peak time but you still have a couple of days. Maybe it will clear up.

This is one of the first times I can remember that it's expected to be clear skies in the NW. We miss out on all the great stuff, like looking up and seeing Uranus.

Oh, and speaking of Uranus, it's not just the meteors that are out tonight. The planets are supposed to be in some kind of alignment too. Might be a good time to get out the crystals and wish for money and stuff.

It was just a fucking apple man, we're sorry okay? Please stop the madness Laugh out load
