Meteor Shower Expected to Delight Sky Watchers-Truth!
Summary of the eRumor: Messages of a rare meteor shower expected
between the 12th and 13th of August 2012 are circulating the Internet.
Some rumors say that this is a night spectacular that only comes once every 1000
The Truth: The Perseid meteor storm is an
annual event in night skies over the Northern Hemisphere.
According to the astronomy web site,
EarthSky.Org, the dark hours before dawn
on the nights of August 12th through the 13th should be
the the best time to view close to 90 "shooting stars" per hour.
The 2012 viewing should be extra special because of the alignment of
the brightest planets in our solar system which will also be in the night sky.
The best viewing for the event should
be a remote area far from city lights.
