The sky is falling!

<idle musing>
Yes, it really is! At least, it was last night when we went for a walk. I know the annual Perseid meteor shower isn't "officially" here until tomorrow night, but last night we saw about 10 meteorites in 15 minutes on our walk. The sky was clear, the temperature was about 59 F, and the meteors decided to grace our walk with a light show. I wonder if that means the "official" shower will be better than usual this year?

No, every year there are some "early" perseids. See it as a great cosmic cloud the earth is flying through.
