Aquarid meteor shower to coincide with super moon

May 2, 2012 SPACEEarth is entering a stream of debris from Halley’s Comet, source of the annual eta Aquarid meteor shower. Because the shower’s radiant is located below the celestial equator, southern hemisphere observers are favored, but even northerners will be able to see at least a few flecks of Halley-dust disintegrating in the atmosphere when the shower peaks this weekend. The best time to look is during the hours before sunrise on Sunday, May 6th. Bright moonlight will cap the meteor rate at about 30 per hour. In recent nights, NASA’s all-sky meteor network has picked up a number of early eta Aquarid fireballs. –Space Weather

  1. “and the stars in the sky fell to earth, as figs drop from a fig tree when shaken by a strong wind. The heavens receded like a scroll being rolled up, and every mountain and island was removed from its place.” Revelation 6:13-14

    The earth goes through this debris every year. This is not the debris called for by Revelation. That event will be large meteorites weighing in at 75 lbs each killing many, many people. This is not that event. We take things in the bible out of context and either increase or decrease their meaning, 1/3 of humanity will not die tomorrow…..so this is not the end. If it should be the end we must celebrate and not act as Lots wife, regretting what is happening to this evil world.
