Some Info on Meteor Showers, etc.

Here is information about meteor showers and similar (I receive enewsletters telling me about them. My son and I used to go to the beach and watch meteor showers 2 or 3 times before his passing away in February of this year). They were some of the best memories I have of him. Meteor showers are fun to watch and to learn about.

Space Weather News for Oct. 8, 2010
http://spaceweather.com

DRACONID METEORS: Every year around Oct. 8th, Earth passes through a minefield
of dusty debris from Comet Giacobini-Zinner, source of the annual Draconid
meteor shower. This year, forecasters expect Earth to narrowly miss several of
the debris streams, resulting in no appreciable display for 2010. Next year,
however, could be different. On Oct. 8, 2011, Earth will have a nearly head-on
collision with a tendril of dust, setting off a strong outburst of as many as
750 meteors per hour. One year from now, sky watchers could see the strongest
meteor shower since the Leonid storms a decade ago. Mark your calendar and,
meanwhile, follow the links at http://spaceweather.com for more information.

COMET HARTLEY 2 UPDATE: Comet 103P/Hartley 2 continues to approach Earth for an
11-million-mile close encounter on Oct. 20th. It is not yet visible to the
unaided eye, but amateur astronomers are finding it easily using backyard
telescopes. The comet's vivid green atmosphere now subtends an angle equal to
some of the biggest craters and seas on the Moon. Visit http://spaceweather.com
for sky maps and latest images.
