The Perseid Meteor Shower – The Affirmation Spot for Friday August 13, 2010

Today’s Affirmation:

I am heir to the Universe’s abundance. I need only claim it. Today I do.

Few things in this world fire my imagination or inspire my soul like the night sky. Of course, there are the occasional comets and other extraordinary events that happen a few times in a lifetime. However, each and every year there is a guaranteed show in August – The Perseid Meteor Shower or “The Perseids” for short.

This meteor shower has happened every August for at least 2000 years. It is the result of the Earth passing through the tail of comet Swift-Tuttle each year as the two bodies work their way around the Sun. The comet is usually not visible but its tail creates a massive display of shooting stars.

Here are some very cool time lapse videos I found on YouTube showing this year’s display. This year’s show peaks August 12 and 13, but progressively fewer shooting stars can still be seen for several nights after.

Stay inspired!
