I am new here and would like to comment on the meteor shower....there wasn't one. take my word for it guys. I am a amatuer Astronomer with two
large telescopes and I know whats going on out there in the cosmos. Also I have several websites I go to that keep me up to date as well and NOTHING
was reported there. There was a meteor shower on June 7..The Arietids but those happened during daylight hours so were actually invisable to the naked
eye. June 30 saw another shower...the Beta Taurids which also occured during daylight hours. other then that....zip.
As for Assie Bloke and his end of the world scenerio...LOL. The comets he was speaking of Linear and Neat pose no problems for us on Earth.
Also his facts were all wrong. He gave clues and hints and pointed you to several websites and from what I gathered he was hinting that a white dwarf
star was the lurking unknown threat. WHAT???? it could never happen. The man's science was all wrong. Te stated the sun was a white star...this is
in fact false....its not..its a yellow star...part of the main sequence stars which are common throughout the cosmos. The many false statements and
his rather narrow knowledge on astrophysics proved to me he was a crack pot long before it was proved that the whole thing was a con.
Anyways thanks for letting me orate and I'm happy to be a new member on what looks like one hell of a interesting message board
