Perseids Meteor!!

Well, I used to play Defence of the Ancience (DOTA), a warcraft game. If you are a DOTA player as well, you will know who is Gorgon Medusa. He is a great hero of old Greek mythology. The skills that have been armed in Medusa are Split Shot, Chain Lighting, Mana Shield, and Purge. If you know Gorgon Medusa, here you go! He is a Perseus. You can see Perseid Meteor on August 12-13, 2009 in certain parts of USA.

What is the meteor? They’re pretty hot, more than 3,000 degrees Fahrenheit (1,650 Celsius). Most meteors vaporize before hitting Earth but now and then when they hit Earth they are then called meteorites. Meteors become visible around 60 miles high in our atmosphere.

The constellation Perseus can be seen in the northern hemisphere. The constellation contains a unique star named Algol (the Demon Star) that is best known as being the first “variable star” discovered. Algol is considered a variable star because it changes in brightness about every three days. Perseus is the radiant of the Perseids Meteor Shower, this is where meteors will appear to originate from. If you want to see this event you can venture out early in the morning of August 12 in Eastern Standard Time Zones and look toward the darkest part of the sky in the east/northeast. Perseid Meteors will streak across the sky at an extremely high rate this year. Have fun and keep your head up. LOL!!
