Space Weather News for Aug 4, 2009

POSSIBLE PERSEID METEOR OUTBURST: This year’s Perseid meteor shower could be even better than usual. According to NASA’s Meteoroid Environment Office, a filament of comet dust has drifted across Earth’s path and when Earth passes through it, sometime between 0800 and 0900 UT (1 – 2 am PDT) on August 12, the Perseid meteor rate could surge to twice its normal value.
