    The Perseids are usually the most rewarding meteors for me.

    Barbie - what's that time of year when shooting stars are most prevelant? I think it may be twice around the solstices? Maybe to do with the asteroid belt.

    I would Google but I know you're pretty good with these things. I ask because a year or so ago I was walking home, drunk, and happened to look up and seen literally hundreds of shooting stars over a period of a couple of hours and figured it must be this phenomena.
    I plan on beating him to death with his kids. I'll use them as a bludgeon on his face. -

    The Perseids are probably the most visible, they appear in mid-august. The next most common ones are Leonids, which appear around mid-november.

    There are others, but I can't remember when they all are, I just usually keep my eyes open for the main ones above.

    They're nothing to do with solstices or the asteroid belt, Astrology-boy, the meteor showers just correspond to times when the Earth passes through dust clouds on its orbit round the sun. :cleverdick:

    Bonus Fact of the Day: the names of the meteor showers are derived from the part of the sky they appear to originate from, i.e. Leonids appear to come from the constellation of Leo, and Perseids appear to come from the constellation of Perseus. :swot:
