Best Perseids Ever!

It is being predicted that the Perseid Meteor Shower, starting on August 11, and ending on August 16, will be the best Perseid ever!

POSSIBLE PERSEID METEOR OUTBURST: This year's Perseid meteor shower could be even better than usual. According to NASA's Meteoroid Environment Office, a filament of comet dust has drifted across Earth's path and when Earth passes through it, sometime between 0800 and 0900 UT (1 - 2 am PDT) on August 12th, the Perseid meteor rate could surge to twice its normal value.

You can find out more information on the Perseids and other Space phenomena at Space Weather. A valuable source for Space news and alerts.
