It's Rainin...Meteors

I seriously love meteor showers--they are wicked cool. 

Clicking on the image takes you to the high-res version. I got this from 8bitniblet (a cool tumblr blog), who got it from jtotheizzoe (another blog...about science). How do you use this?

  •  The date on the left is the early morning after midnight on the day it will peak (so “October 7” is between  midnight and sunrise on the morning of the 7th). 
  • The constellation represents the point in the sky that the shower will “originate” from. 
  • Choose someplace dark, away from city lights, and bring a blanket and a friend.
  • Enjoy.
