It's that time again – the time when night skies are ablaze with nature's fireworks, better known as the Perseid Meteor Shower.

For the past 2,000 years, debris from the Swift-Tuttle Comet has been raining debris visible to the naked eye in the nighttime sky; sometimes 100 or more meteors per hour are spotted, reported the International Business Times .

Peak viewing times this year fall on Aug. 12-13. But because it coincides with a full moon, the 100 or more meteors normally visible will dwindle to only 20 to 30.

Just wondering, and someone is going to say it, but did you somehow miss THE TOP thread (now below this one) about the very same subject?

I would understand if there was a different twist, other than a heads up, I mean even half of the folks here could make some outrageous claim to start the thread off.
