Meteoroids in space since the Civil War will spice up
this summer's Perseid meteor shower.
June 25, 2004: The annual Perseid meteor shower is coming, and forecasters say it could be unusually good.
The shower begins, gently, in mid-July when Earth enters the outskirts of a cloud of debris from Comet Swift-Tuttle. Dust-sized meteoroids hitting the
atmosphere will streak across the night sky, at first only a sprinkling, just a few each night, but the rate will build.
