According to a statement made by Bill Cooke of NASA’s Meteoroid Environments Office, “forecasters are predicting a Perseid outburst this year with double the normal rates on the night of August 11-12. . . . Under perfect conditions, rates could soar to 200 meteors per hour.”
Typically we get 80 meteors per hour during the Perseids, so tonight’s shower could be a historical one.
The Perseids occur when Earth enters into the path of Comet “Swift-Turtle,” though we usually only get to the edges of the debris trail that it leaves behind as it hurtles through space.
Below is a little video from Business Insider about tonight’s shower.
We Are Obsessed With Space
Humans are obsessed with space, or perhaps we are simply fascinated by the unknown. Archaeologists have even found 5,000 year old Egyptian artifacts that came from space. If we look at Sumerian and Mayan culture, they too were obsessed with space, and our fascination has not waned since.
Unfortunately, the world we are living in is not one of openness and transparency, but one of secrecy and concealment. Our thirst for knowledge always seems to be blocked by a “breakaway” civilization, a civilization created within our own world that has amassed tremendous resources and seems to lie at the heart of the military industrial complex. That term was coined by Richard Dolan, one of the world’s leading researchers on the the black budget world and the UFO phenomenon. We live in a world where science, technology, and new discoveries about the true nature of our reality are concealed for the sake of ‘national security.’ Some of these programs, also known as Special Access Programs (SAPs), are so sensitive that they receive no oversight from Congress.
Any time I write about something related to space, I feel it’s important to mention this, because when it comes to space affairs there is no shortage of secrecy.

Our obsession with space will only continue to grow, especially when so many previously classified documents and hundreds of high ranking witness testimony have already been revealed to us. The more we continue to question and dig for truth, the closer we come to exposing it.
There is something indescribable about gazing into a stary night, something that captures the attention of our soul. Perhaps that’s because we’re looking into a part of where we came from?
I’ll leave you with this video of last year’s shower. If you plan on viewing tonight, enjoy!
