*PERSEID METEOR OUTBURST:* *Do you love the Perseid meteor shower?  This 
year, you will love it even more. Forecasters say the 2016 Perseids 
should be twice as active as usual, filling the sky with 200+ meteors 
per hour on peak nights between Aug. 11th and 13th.  This is happening 
because Earth is heading for an unusually rich stream of debris from 
parent comet Swift-Tuttle. Visit **http://spaceweather.com
