Meteors before Tisha B'Av

Just a coincidence of course...NASA reports (here):

Friday, August 12th, before sunrise, meteors. The 2005 Perseid meteor shower.

The Perseids come every year, beginning in late July and stretching into August. Sky watchers outdoors at the right time can see colorful fireballs, occasional outbursts and, almost always, long hours of gracefully streaking meteors. Among the many nights of the shower, there is always one night that is best. This year: August 12th.


Update: Thanks for link Soccer Dad.

In case it's unclear from the above, the meteor shower continues over a period of a week or more. I'm told it's particularly visible in the hills of the Shomron (West Bank), where there's little light pollution.

This Tisha B'Av, the heavens will be providing fireworks. Let's hope it's for a good reason.
