Meteor Shower Tonight is going to be at its Apogee

An absolutely stunning firework display of meteors is visible tonight in the Western hemisphere. Belonging to the Perseid group of meteors, this bedazzling show surely amuse, amaze and entertain the onlookers. 

There is something about the night sky which keeps us looking up in wonder and awe. And in case of this resplendent meteor shower, the good thing is that you can watch it in the form of a video clip in cyberspace. 

That will make such nuisances as cloudy weather or neon lights seem minor irritants. From Tuesday, August 12th to Wednesday, August 13th, the full panoramic view of the meteor shower will reveal itself to the naked human eye. 

Like previously mentioned, if you have issues with the climatic situation or city lights that create photonic pollution, you can always go online and enjoy a clear albeit vicarious view of the unfolding astronomical drama. The online video clip is there due to the efforts of the Slooh Community Observatory and NASA. 

The first free webcast of meteor shower will ensue from 7 pm EDT (2300 GMT). You can also watch the Perseid meteor shower webcasts live on Space.com, courtesy of Slooh and NASA.

The rate of burnout of the meteors is 30 to 40 shooting stars per hourly basis. It is a sight to see with our eyes wide open indeed. 

The Perseid meteor shower happens to be the most watched and fascinating of the list of astronomical phenomena. 

As the meteors burn up in a blaze of glory upon hitting the earth’s atmosphere the very image of the brightly lit sparks are enough to send one into an ecstatic and mystical state. 

The people living in the Northern hemisphere got the best view of the Perseid meteor shower. Whenever the month of August arrives annually, the Perseid meteor shower comes regularly in its wake. 

It is a like a harbinger of light that shows us that there are more things in heaven and earth than are to be found in our philosophy.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
