The Perseid Meteor Shower is SHOT !

Spent. Done.

When I was a kid, it was amazing–worth sleeping out in the backyard for.

But no more. I’ve spent the past five or six years devoting a whole half hour each “peak night” and have come away disappointed.

They say meteors (shooting stars) are a bad sign. Or a good sign.  Some kind of sign. But what about the end of shooting stars?

That could be a worse sign.

Although it’s kind of nice to have one on the younger generation, as if they belong to a less mythic age. Because that’s how I think of my predecessors, so why shouldn’t I get some of that same Time-glow?

“When I was a kid, you could get a natural psychedelic light show just laying on your back at night during the Dog Days of August. No more. Now you can only see it in Vv [Virtualvision].  Poor chumps….”

  1. Tonight is post-peak, but I was out the previous two and fleh–nothing. How long can comet residue last? Maybe sometimes that shit just runs out. I think it’s out.

  2. I unfortunately agree. I woke up to see not a single meteor, of course it was cloudy. you can watch the meteor show in dec. its the most meteors per hour and it’s all night.
