Meteor Show tonight !
I see in the paper that the annual Perseid meteor shower is about to take place tonight. I would like to see part of it anyway. Just about the time we are getting home from prayer-meeting at our church, it should start. The newspaper says most meteors are "really the size of a grain of dust" and the bright trails we see from the ground are atoms being vaporized by friction as those particles enter the Earth's atmosphere at amazing speeds"....The best viewing will be after 2am Thursday. The moon is a waning crescent right now, and it wows me. Psalm 19 says, "The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handiwork. Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge. There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard."
