Being a true Leo, Bob also thinks The Perseid Meteor shower has been scheduled in his honor. Something about how heaven must have sent him here. Being a true Virgo, I let him believe this. I will say this about the meteor showers though, if you have never seen them, get out of the city lights this weekend, kick back and watch a very dazzling show.
My thanks to wikipedia for providing the following details:
Each year, the Earth passes through the debris of a comet called the Swift-Tuttle. This debris burns up in our atmosphere to form what we see as meteors or shooting stars. The Perseid Meteor shower is at its peak during mid-August. In the US, it peaks on the night of August 12, 2011, and into the early morning of August 13. During a peak, at least 50–60 meteors can be observed during each hour. Considered the best and brightest meteor show of the year by many, it's a great opportunity to go outside and check out nature's own dramatic show. Note: The full moon may obscure some of the showers this year.
