Find shelter, for a trail of cosmic dust will be left by the almighty comets. On the night of August 11-12 a Perseid meteor shower will occur.
Not to fear, rather than a tragic warning from the Gods to treat our mother nature with more respect, this will be an event to tune out to. We say tune out, not in because you will want to be out for this occasion. Outside, out of your element, out of your pants, out on too much red wine, whichever sort of outing you choose.
One thing is evident, while the plethora of shooting stars streams above your head, you might find yourself scoring a smooch or two. First you must find at least one living being to prop next to you, so it appears that you’re engaging in romantic behavior. Okay fine, a blow-up doll will do, as long as you fulfill the cliche.
The Perseus constellation will disperse the Perseid meteors… like little sperm swimming through the galaxy. If that’s not an aphrodisiac then we give up.
According to the Washingtonpost, the meteor shower will take place starting midnight Saturday, but 8 a.m. Sunday is the peak time when you’re likely to see the most meteors. Don’t be a wimp, stay awake, and if you don’t you better take your shoes off!
