Default Meteor Shower

There will be a meteor shower 28-29 th of July in the Southern sky in the northern hemisphere. Sometimes different showers overlap and even more can be seen. I was also reading that the comet Swift-Tuttle, the scource the Persid meteor shower, may be dangerously close to the earth in years to come. Potentially an extinction event.

I only saw 6 at 3-4 am 8/11. Not very exciting. Persids are way too damned fast. Saw a cool slow one spinning from elsewhere. Not sure of its origin. 6 per hour is not enough to keep my interest. Not even if I had beer and a "good" smoke and a lady to talk to while waiting. Maybe the peak tomorrow will be better. I was taking advantage of the moon setting before dawn. It will be there tonight unfortunately.

If I were laying out on the grass with a good beer and a fine lady I believe Id find something better to do than stare at the night sky. The beer might even get warm!

It was cloudy anyway. It seems to happen alot during this particular meteor shower. I am not that fond of Persids anyway because they are so fasr.
