Annual meteor shower – Perseids – the Tears of St Lawrence

perseid-mapToday is the Feast of St Lawrence of Rome, Deacon and Martyr.  He was a serious hard-core saint in hard times.

This is also the time of year that your planet whirls through the debris left by the comet known as Swift-Tuttle.  Hence, there will be an increase of meteors and fireballs nicknamed the “Tears of St Lawrence”.  This is also called the Perseid Meteor Shower because the meteors appear to streak outward from the constellation Perseus.

Speaking of the Perseids, check out an engaging  “apocalyptic” series by Steven Konkoly.  It begins with The Jakarta Pandemic (UK HERE).

These are inexpensive on Kindle.

It goes on with The Perseid Collapse (UK HERE)  Counted as Book 1, but it continues with previous characters.

The series continues with

Event Horizon: A Post Apocalyptic/Dystopian EMP Thriller (The Perseid Collapse Series Book 2)

US HERE – UK HERE

and

Point of Crisis: A Post Apocalyptic/Dystopian EMP Thriller (The Perseid Collapse Series Book 3)

and

Dispatches: A Post Apocalyptic/Dystopian EMP Thriller (The Perseid Collapse Series Book 4)

    Hopefully I can make some 6 meter contacts bouncing of the meteor showers and the eclipse coming very soon! At least before the Lord’s Return! :-) W2JPG

    One of these days I have to get a telescope.

    A friend has started those EMP novels. His wife is a fan of the SurvivalMom website.
