Watch out for the meteors tonight
If you are out an about in Europe after midnight tonight, perhaps celebrating the continued existence of our planet, and look into the sky in the direction of the Orion constellation, you should see some meteors. We will be making our annual pass through the debris left behind by Halley’s Comet. Although the meteors will pass through our atmosphere at around 90,000 miles per hour, they are very small and will burn up, giving us a view of some shooting stars. Let’s hope no large unseen chunks of comet are out there to destroy the earth. I couldn’t bear living in a world that ended when predicted by Harold Camping’s crazy mathematical formula, but then I wouldn’t have to.
