The Correct Answer Is Always “C” ~ Choose Love

Image Source

Hello, Brothers and Sisters! This past weekend was an intense and challenging time for many people. Most of my time was spent cleaning, painting, and otherwise working around the house but I know that there was a lot of energy moving out there, on both lower and higher levels. I’ve had some wonderfully blissful transcendant times the past few days and I’ve pretty much been happy and moving through my activities effortlessly.

So, I am speaking from experience when I tell you that, no matter what appears to be happening around you (in the illusion), the way that you feel and what you do is entirely your choice. If you choose to stay grounded, centered, and balanced and if you choose to stay in 5D or Unity Consciousness, then that is what you will experience. On the other hand, if you choose to fall back into the old paradigm, then you can look forward to all the things that a dualistic existence brings: ups and downs including drama, fear, pain, and suffering. You can embrace judgment and everything that judgment brings with it: drama, fear, pain, suffering and all the lower vibrational emotions you love to hate.

We knew that November would be an exciting and interesting month. There is a lot going on energetically and there is a lot of movement on the Ascension Front. November, of course, is the time of Scorpio. Personally, I love November and yes, I am a Scorpio. Scorpio is represented by three animals ~ the scorpion, the eagle, and the phoenix. For more on where I am going with this, please check out Pam Younghans’ fabu post: Northpoint Astrology Journal ~ Your Guide to Planetary Energies for November 16 to 22, 2015.

Bottom line ~ in this Now, do you want to be the scorpion, the eagle, or the phoenix? It is your choice.

You are free to choose whatever you like. There is no right or wrong and everybody is on their own journey. My suggestion would be to choose consciously rather than reacting and heading down one road or another with no awareness of what you are doing.

In closing, I thought I would share two Facebook posts I made this weekend. I hope you find them helpful and empowering.

I Love You, I respect your journey, I am honored by your Service, and I thank you for playing your Role.
And, as always, I will meet you on The Bridge!

~ Love, Rain

Happy Sunday, Love Beans! I had an amazing meditation before I fell asleep last night. It was transcendant and blissful. I was transcendant and blissful. One thing I thought about was how much I love my friends and family ~ all of you. I am so grateful and blessed to be surrounded by so many wonderful people. And of course – two uberamazing dogs!

I chose Love some time ago and my life has gotten better and better since then. My advice would be to ALWAYS choose Love. Don’t get caught up in drama, fear, anger, sadness, and events that appear to be happening around you. Let people have their experiences, no matter what they look like to you. Understand that nothing happens to us without our choice and permission. We alone are responsible for what we create. Have faith that people know what they are doing and understand that everything that happens is for the highest good of all. Observe with compassion but remember that only Love is Real ~ everything else is Illusion. These are testing times and although you cannot fail, the correct answer is always C ~ Choose Love. What will you choose ~ old paradigm reaction or The New? Will you choose to understand that there is no such thing as good or bad and that duality is just a game? Will you choose the unconditional Love that defines Unity Consciousness?

♥       ♥       ♥       ♥       ♥       ♥       ♥

Everything changes when...

Happy Saturday, Love Beans! I hope you are all having a JOYous, JOYful, JOYlicious kind of day!

Remember, when something appears to be happening in the illusion, you always have a choice as to how you will view it. Will you go old paradigm and react with fear, anger, or sadness or you will stay in 5D/Unity Consciousness and observe with compassionate detachment? We know that everything happens for a reason, that people choose what they will experience, and that everything that happens is for the highest good of all. So, in this moment, will you choose to take the lower vibrational 3D road or the higher vibrational road that takes you to the kind of existence you have been saying you want to live? Do you want to be in joy and radiate Love, grounding high vibrational energies for Humanity or do you want to be in fear, pain, and suffering and spread lower vibrational energies around for others to deal with? It’s always your choice. Always.

11/11 ~ Mastery Portal

... people really can fly!

Hello, Brothers and Sisters. Happy Monday!

Everybody has been talking about the huge 11/11 Portal and it’s easy to understand why if you’ve been feeling the energies that are already coming in. This is a deeply transformative and important time and what is happening now will also serve as a foundation for what is to come on the 12/12. I don’t want to jump too far ahead but if you think the 11/11 is big, just wait until next month. BOOYAH!

Anyway, in The Now, we should be focusing on our Mastery. All portals are gateways to higher levels of consciousness and opportunities for greater unity (the expansion of unity consciousness). At this time, the energies are supporting you taking charge of your journey and owning who and what you are.  In other words, if you intend to be a 5D Being and live in The New Earth and be in Unity Consciousness, then you will find these energies very supportive and you will feel a great sense of upliftment and joy. You will find your wings and you will soar to new heights.

Time To Fly

Here are some tips to help you fly through the Mastery Portal with ease!

♥  Own who and what you are! If you feel, for example, that you are a Creation Pillar or a Gatekeeper or that you have been operating ahead of the curve, clearing a path for others to follow, embrace it. Knowing who you are and what your role is makes you aware, not arrogant. Enlightened Huemans understand that we are all equal and that nobody is better or worse than anybody else and that no role is more or less important than another. If we trust ourselves more and accept what we feel, things will flow more easily and we will become more powerful. Resistance to our impressions only slows us down and makes things harder. Don’t worry about making a mistake by assuming something that might turn out to be untrue; you will never find the right answers if you do not remain open to all possibilities and explore all thoughts that come your way.

~ Bear and Butterfly ~

♥  Keep it simple. Your intentions are really all that matter. Your intentions are your most powerful gift and tool. The Kingdom of Heaven is within and you arrived here with everything you need to complete your journey. No class, crystal, website, teacher, channeler, or guru can give you what you need to achieve Unity Consciousness ~ only you can do that. Yes, other people and tools and rituals, etc. can help you but they are never necessary. Ascension is free and ascension is for everybody, even the most isolated and financially poor person on the planet.

♥ Don’t give your power away. See above. No teacher, channeler, life coach, or guru can give you what you need to achieve Unity Consciousness ~ only you can do that. When you want or need assistance or support, look first to your own guides and angels and your friends and family ~ look to those who love you unconditionally, not to those who don’t even know you.

♥ Forge your own path. Again, see above ~ some of these points are very similar. You are here because you are unique. Do not try to be like somebody else. Find your own way of doing things ~ I assure you it exists or you would not be here. You can take what you learn from others and use it to shape your own method of doing whatever it is that you came here to do. When you have found your own way of doing your thing, you will find that everything will fall into place and your Love, Wisdom, and Power will balance into a unique, eternal blazing flame that is You, accomplishing your mission.

~ expansion ~

♥ Stop waiting for things outside of yourself to happen. Stop waiting for changes and big events to occur. Ascension is about expansion and expansion comes from within. It can be no other way. Waiting for things outside of yourself to happen is giving your power away. You are here to create a new reality, not to wait for somebody else to “fix” 3D. There is no fixing 3D, it’s dualistic for a reason and 3D can never be 5D.

♥ Accept that some things you thought were true are not really true. Fantasies and illusions are dissolving now and this is a good thing ~ a necessary thing. Accepting that some things you thought were true are not true and then letting go of them is a sign of growth and evolution. It’s not a sign that you made a mistake ~ there are no mistakes, only learning experiences. Embrace what you have learned and move on. No big deal!

♥ Understand that everything is Divine. At some point on your path, you will find that judgment is the only thing that can hold you back. You and your judgments are the only thing that can hold you back. No, it’s not easy to put the idea that there is no such thing as “evil” or “bad” or “bad guys” into practice. It’s not easy to love everybody unconditionally. But it can be done and this is part of your Mastery. Detachment and Divine Neutrality truly are the keys to the life of Bliss that you have been working toward. Embrace them and practice them and soon you will find that this is your new way of life ~ loving, joyful, blissful, and judgment-free.

Dare to be happy!

♥ Understand that some people may not enjoy the fact that you are so happy in your new life. That’s okay. Never dim your light because others are unhappy; instead, shine brighter so that they can find their path. Celebrate your joyful existence! Isn’t that what you wanted? Isn’t that what you worked so hard for? Say goodbye to suffering. Lightworkers did not come here to suffer. Suffering is not noble and suffering is not Love. Understanding what “suffering” is and transcending it ~ that is Love. That is the magic and alchemy of Love. That is how we work our magic.

♥ Make your choice once and for all ~ embrace 5D or linger in the old. Bottom line ~ at this point in your journey, which do you think will be easier? If you’re tired of struggling and releasing and healing, etc., then it is truly time to let go once and for all. If you feel like you have done your work and transmuted everything twice over, then let it go. Free yourself from the past and the way you have been doing things until now. Try something new. Cut the cords and just move on. You are the one making the choices and decisions here. I can assure you that if something requires your attention, it will make itself known to you, so stop worrying that you have more “issues” to deal with. That’s old paradigm, Love Beans! This is Your journey. Move into the life that you want; accept your natural state of Love and Freedom and start living it.

~ Butterfly Has A Message For You ~

This is the time of the butterfly! In Scorpio language, this is the time of the phoenix. You are the butterfly! You are the phoenix! You are being reborn out of the ashes of the old. As I write this, I have goosebumps and tears of Joy because I know this is true and I can see and feel Brothers and Sisters all over the planet becoming Huemans. Becoming Angelic Humans. Becoming 5D. Joining us in Unity Consciousness. HELLO! I LOVE YOU! Thank you for finding The Bridge. My Heart is Full.

Full Moon In Pisces and Lion’s Gate Courage

moon 1b 8 28 15

We recently passed through the Lion’s Gate and now we have a full moon (supermoon) in Pisces. There is so much to say about these events. Not only are they hugely significant in and of their own, but they also herald what is to come next. As usual, the amazing celestial events we are experiencing bring us some wonderful Lightworker posts to enjoy, learn from, and share. (You can check our Facebook media page if you would like to review any of the latest Spiritual news and updates.)

What I’d like to do now is share with you my own experience and feelings in this moment.


11/11 ~ HUGE! Stargate ~ Timegate ~ Portal ~ Gateway

The Light at the end of the tunnel is you.

I’d like to start off this post with something I shared on Facebook today ~

11/10/14 ~ Today’s theme is Letting Go in preparation for the BIG 11/11 Portal/Gateway. Those energies are already coming in so if you’re feeling intensity and lower vibrational emotions/thoughts, LET THEM GO. LET IT ALL GO. Take time for yourself and embrace who you are. Accept and go with The Flow, do not resist. Be grateful that you are able to overcome the challenges that YOU CHOSE by choosing Love to overcome them. This is a win/win game. Choosing Love and Letting Go are how you get to the Serenity Prize faster and easier. Press the Easy Button – Choose Love! We are ALL in service to each other. There are no “bad guys.” Take responsibility and liberate yourself. Ask for assistance. You are surrounded by Love and all you have to do is let it in. I Love You and I will see you on the other side, Beloved Master! *hugs*

Now I’d like to expand on the 11/11 Gateway, based on some of my own feelings and some discussions I’ve had with El Morya, Lady Nada, and The Elohim.


Opposing Uranus Full Blood Moon Eclipse Meteor Shower Kite Grand Fire Trine Portal ~ Say What?

~life is a rollercoaster~close-up

Image Source

The energies have been intensely fabulous lately and they’re about to get bigger. HUGE, in fact!

Buckle up, Star Babies! Wait, actually that won’t work. Throw away your seatbelt and grab your StarBoard cuz this is gonna be a helluva ride! BOOYAH!

Here’s what’s in store for us over the next four days:

October 7 ~ Uranus at Opposition

October 8 ~ Full Blood Moon Eclipse

October 8, 9 ~ Draconids Meteor Shower

October 10 ~ 10/10 Portal

The moon will be in Aries at the time of the eclipse (6:51 am eastern). Retrograde Mercury is in Scorpio, moving into Libra on October 10. Mercury will be retrograde until October 26. The eclipse chart includes a Grand Fire Trine and a more rare configuration called a Kite.

See below for more information on all these events with links to other sources.

In the past, when I’ve written about times/events like this, I’ve included excerpts from some of the sources who have discussed them, highlighting what you might expect to experience, including the more positive and the more challenging possibilities. But I don’t want to do that this time, for a couple of reasons. One, although each event is unique, they’re always about energy. Everything is energy. And I don’t think it really matters what type of energy you are being gifted with in any moment. I think what matters is what you do with it and how you deal with everything that is going on. In this process, we know there are ups and downs. We know there are challenging and intense times. That won’t change for quite a while. It’s you who will change. And me. All of us are changing. It doesn’t matter if you are being gifted with intense energies at a particular moment. What matters is whether or not you are still struggling with them and what you are going to do about it.

Two, I prefer not to dwell on what you might call the “negative” or challenging aspects of these types of events. It’s kind of like when Mercury goes retrograde. Did you know that Mercury goes retrograde three or four times a year? Sometimes I wonder if Mercury feels like President Obama because he gets blamed for everything all the time, too. I don’t want to blame Mercury’s journey any more than I want to blame President Obama or you or the cabal or The Great Spirit if things seem to be going offtrack. If things seem to be going offtrack, I intend to put my focus where it belongs ~ on myself. So what if it looks like Mercury is moving backward? All that matters is how I deal with whatever that may bring. In that sense, this time is no different than any other. Every moment is the same when I understand that everything is energy and that all I need is within. The only thing that matters is what I do or don’t do. The only thing that matters is how I choose to deal with every moment that comes.

So why am I even talking about this? Why am I writing a post about this interesting and potentially challenging week if I don’t want to discuss the details?

Because it’s EXCITING! I’m EXCITED! I’m happy, joyful, and looking forward to wonderful moments and experiences ~ miracles even. After all, magic is afoot! There will be beautiful things to see and amazing things to feel. I’m getting on the roller coaster and I’m going to sit in the first car. My heart is going to pound on the way up and I will yell with joy on the way down. I’m going to stick my hands out of the car and I’m going to keep my eyes open when we go upside down. Sometimes the ride will slow down and sometimes it will speed up and I will enjoy every minute of it. And when the ride is over I am going to get back in line. I’ll probably make some new friends while we’re waiting to get to the front of the line. Then I’m going to get back on the roller coaster and do it all over again. Because as scary as a roller coaster ride can be at times, I know there is really no danger. Because I know there is nothing to be afraid of, ever. Because I love it when my stomach drops then jumps back into my throat. Because it’s exhilarating. Because it’s like flying. Because it’s like defying gravity. Because I have no control over what happens. Because it gives me a feeling of speed and freedom. And because it’s FUN.

How do you feel about this time? It doesn’t matter what anybody else says. I could tell you that you might feel your emotions coming to the surface or past memories popping up, seemingly haunting you yet again. I could tell you that some people will be lashing out in anger or acting crazy. I could tell you that you might be tired or experience headaches or other physical symptoms. I could tell you that this is a perfect time to balance your four lower bodies or to gauge how much progress you’ve made on your spiritual journey. So, what else is new? Isn’t that how you could describe every moment of this process?

What matters is how you choose to perceive this moment, how you choose to proceed, and how you want to come out on the other side of it. Do you envision this as a difficult time when you want to hide under the covers or do you envision this as a magical mystery tour kind of time, filled with wonderful possibilities?

You’re a co-creator and you are being given some interesting energies to work with. The rest, as they say, is up to you.

~ Love, Rain

Blood Moon Eclipse ~ Now

Relentless Releasing

What’s Happening in October 2014

October 7Uranus at Opposition. The blue-green planet will be at its closest approach to Earth and its face will be fully illuminated by the Sun. This is the best time to view Uranus. Due to its distance, it will only appear as a tiny blue-green dot in all but the most powerful telescopes.

October 8Full Moon. The Moon will be directly opposite the Earth from the Sun and will be fully illuminated as seen from Earth. This phase occurs at 10:51 UTC. This full moon was known by early Native American tribes as the Full Hunters Moon because at this time of year the leaves are falling and the game is fat and ready to hunt. This moon has also been known as the Travel Moon and the Blood Moon.

October 8Total Lunar Eclipse. A total lunar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes completely through the Earth’s dark shadow, or umbra. During this type of eclipse, the Moon will gradually get darker and then take on a rusty or blood red color. The eclipse will be visible throughout most of North America, South America, eastern Asia, and Australia. (NASA Map and Eclipse Information)

October 8, 9Draconids Meteor Shower. The Draconids is a minor meteor shower producing only about 10 meteors per hour. It is produced by dust grains left behind by comet 21P Giacobini-Zinner, which was first discovered in 1900. The shower runs annually from October 6-10 and peaks this year on the the night of the 8th and morning of the 9th. Unfortunately the glare from the full moon this year will block out all but the brightest meteors. If you are extremely patient, you may be able to catch a few good ones. Best viewing will be just after midnight from a dark location far away from city lights. Meteors will radiate from the constellation Draco, but can appear anywhere in the sky. ~ Astronomy Calendar ~ 2014

Feeling Our Way Through The September Gateway and Super Moon!

~ the light at the end of the tunnel...

Several people have written about the gateway that we are passing through at this time. It culminates around the time of our latest Super Moon, on September 8/9. Energies from these types of events start coming in a few days earlier and stop coming in a few days after the event, so you may be feeling them until September 12th or even longer.

Following is some information, sources included, about what is happening right now. After that you will find my feelings about what is going on for us as well as some additional info on the super moon.


Lion’s Gate + SuperMoon + Meteor Shower = OH MY

march 27 44c

Welcome to an OH MY Moment ~ Lions and Moons and Meteors! We find ourselves in the middle of some amazing moments right now. If you aren’t feeling it, you might want to ask yourself what’s distracting you so much!

Today (August 10, 1:44 pm eastern time) the moon goes Super in Aquarius. We entered the Lion’s Gate on 8/8 and will be passing through this portal until about August 25th. And, the Persieds Meteor Shower, which runs annually from July 17 to August 24 will peak on August 12/13. (See below for more information on all of these events).

Naturally, a lot of people have been talking about these events. Here are some highlights ~

“The combination of celestial energies will birth emotional awakenings and realignments both inside and out. It will facilitate breaking out of stuck places, in many cases by smashing them with a sucker punch. Invite it in to those situations that have held you back, crawled to a halt or defied resolution. (Surely you’ve got one or two lying around?) The omens are favorable for shape-shifting out-of-balance financial agreements in particular and shattering limiting programming (Emotional Freedom Technique is one approach).” Source: 2014 Aquarius Full Moon, Kathy Biehl

THE FULL MOON on Sunday, August 10, integrates all of the aspects we’ve just been discussing — Sun conjunct Mercury, Uranus trine Sun/Mercury, Saturn square Sun/Mercury, and Chiron quincunx Sun/Mercury. And, of course, the Moon is part of the dance as well, opposing Sun/Mercury, sextile Uranus, square Saturn, and semi-sextile Chiron. Oh, and don’t forget Neptune trine Mars…” Source: Northpoint Astrology Journal, Pam Younghans

“On August 8th of your earthly time, many will experience the incoming energies, for the Lions Gate will indeed open and allow the energy to come through to all the light workers. As this occurs many of you will experience the expansion of your energy body, your physical body and your consciousness. Many of you will experience yourself becoming denser and heavier, and yet larger than life, at moments you will feel as if you are about to burst, worry NOT, for what you will be experiencing is a collection of energies that you are then to anchor into GAIA on August 25th.” Source: The Hathors – Lion’s Gate Portal August 8th & 25th – THEME MAGIC – EXPANSION OF CONSCIOUSNESS, Anna Merkaba

“Freedom, equality, balance, tranquility, resurrection, remembrance, antiquity, emotional release of pain and suffering, and understanding the stubble energies of unconditional love shall become the primary guiding posts for your earthly selves in the days to come.” Source: THE HATHORS – LIONS GATE – SUPER MOON  AUGUST 9/10, Anna Merkaba

“Be the one you have been waiting for, because you are the one you have been waiting for.  Not some magician who comes in to magically shift this Earth for you, it is you that has the responsibility of your own Magical kingdom and shift.  And because you have the power and the inner wisdom to do so, it is important to allow the current energies and inner shifts to unfold and to let all the rest go and be.  This is priority now: to hold that space and honor the Grace from within.”
Source: Lion’s Gate ~ Diamond Light Grid ~ Current energies by Méline Portia Lafont

“August 2014 is all about change, change is echoing in the chambers of our souls.  Following the direction of the heart takes a tough dedicated spiritually strong person. Choices of the heart are never easy. This year has been a time of metamorphosis. (The hard way the easy way and every which way.)  We have been stripped down to our barely human essentials.  Standing in front of the Light, we bare our souls.” Source: 8:8 Solar Power, Gillian MacBeth-Louthan

With everything that’s going on right now, naturally I would ask: what does all this mean for me? Or you?

Well for one thing, with Moon in Aquarius opposing Sun in Leo, this gives us a fantastic opportunity to balance our Emotional and Spiritual Bodies. If it feels like there is too much going on for you, I would focus on that. I feel this is going to be a huge moment for a lot of people, because so many are unbalanced in the Emotional Body. Experiencing extreme emotional states can become addictive because such states cause changes in the body. And people who have been in the Matrix/Program/Illusion for a long time have been prompted to experience extreme emotions over and over. The Cabal wanted you unbalanced and emotional so they could use that energy. Let’s face it, the Cabal LOVES Drama and Drama Queens.

If you are unbalanced in your Emotional Body (in the sense of being too emotional) this will greatly impact your energy. It will be scattered, chaotic, and unfocused. You will most likely be walking around with a lot of emotional debris in your field. Some of it is yours and some of it is stuff you have picked up from other people. People in this state usually remain so until somebody else comes along and transmutes their stuff. This is often preceded by some type of emotional outburst. Bottom Line: It’s not enjoyable for anybody except the Drama Queen who feeds on this sort of experience. And it’s a cycle that repeats over and over. If you are a Lightworker who is unbalanced in the Emotional Body, this is your chance to make a quantum leap and end this state of Being once and for all.

Think about it ~ you will be helping all of Humanity if you decide to do this. Of course, this also means you will be helping yourself because you cannot move forward, reaching higher states of consciousness and awareness and entering Unity Consciousness and Serenity, if you are emotionally unbalanced. If you are emotionally unbalanced, you might think you are working for the Light but you’re actually feeding the matrix.

What else is happening in this Moment? I feel strongly that it is about aligning completely with Source. When we are properly aligned with Source Energy, we can tap into the unlimited energy that is available to us, thereby amplifying and expanding ourselves and all that we are doing with our own energy. Getting aligned with Source involves intention and focus but it is not difficult. Intend to align, ask for assistance, and pursue a closer relationship with The Great Spirit/Creator. Also make sure that you are not trafficking in negative energy in any way and that you are grounded, centered, and balanced. This amazing video will help as well.

I also feel that this moment is about becoming our Authentic Selves. If we want to come through the Lion’s Gate and arrive in a new place, we must let go of anything that is not Real. No more mask or armor, not even a tiny piece. Everything that you’ve picked up here in the illusion since you were born must be dropped at the gate.

 lion 1b

This is probably a good time to talk about The Lion, since we are in The Lion’s Gate. Lion represents many things but chief among them is Courage. It takes courage to be vulnerable and to be your authentic self. Be the Lion. Be LionHearted. Have the Heart of a Lion. Remember, we are all One and that means you are The Lion. We can all embody the best qualities of Lion if we choose. Just choose.

This video shares the original song that would later become “The Lion Sleeps Tonight.” The Zulu chorus “Uyimbube” means “You are a lion.” More: Wikipedia.

So just remember ~ YOU ARE A LION and this is your time to ROAR! You have the courage and everything else you need to drop or release anything that you might have been hanging on to and then proceed through the Lion’s Gate. You can come out on the other side of this portal as a changed Being ~ a powerful Love Being with a new sense of Serenity who is making the grid shine a little bit brighter and stronger.

Here is what some of our other Crew Members had to say about the Lion’s Gate Energies ~

Coco: I’m getting more familiar with my own ebb and flow. I’m more intuitive and less interested in following what other people have to say about what’s going on.

Suzannah: Lots of good stuff is coming!

Meg: It’s like a buffet spread out before me but there is also a voice saying, “Eat whatever you want but keep it balanced.”

Debbie: Transformation and accepting who I really am. I’m able to connect faster and easier.

Michelle: Experiencing clarity of joy.

10– The closest lunar perigee of 2014 occurs, with the Moon 356,896 kilometres distant at 17:44 UT.

10- The Closest Full Moon of the year & “Super” Moon (2 of 3) for 2014 occurs, with Full Moon occurring just 27 minutes after perigee.


  • August 10Full Moon. The Moon will be directly opposite the Earth from the Sun and will be fully illuminated as seen from Earth. This phase occurs at 18:09 UTC. This full moon was known by early Native American tribes as the Full Sturgeon Moon because the large sturgeon fish of the Great Lakes and other major lakes were more easily caught at this time of year. This moon has also been known as the Green Corn Moon and the Grain Moon. This is also the closest and largest full Moon of the year, an annual event that has come to be known as a “supermoon” by the media. The truth is that it is only slightly larger and brighter than normal and most people are not really able to tell the difference.
  • August 12, 13Perseids Meteor Shower. The Perseids is one of the best meteor showers to observe, producing up to 60 meteors per hour at its peak. It is produced by comet Swift-Tuttle, which was discovered in 1862. The Perseids are famous for producing a large number of bright meteors. The shower runs annually from July 17 to August 24. It peaks this year on the night of August 12 and the morning of August 13. The waning gibbous moon will block out some of the meteors this year, but the Perseids are so bright and numerous that it should still be a good show. Best viewing will be from a dark location after midnight. Meteors will radiate from the constellation Perseus, but can appear anywhere in the sky.Source:
